IX the compilation of tliis ucrk the .Icsign ha^ Ikmi to present to the r.n.theihoo.l 
of Elks a definite account of the purposes, ohjects and aims of the (.)rder. the 
inception of the C )ri:anization and its development into one of the greatest and 
most influential societies in the world. 

Tiie ])ortraits with which tiie work is protn>ely illustrated were prepared hy a 
special copper plate process, and are the finest that modern skill an.l art can pro- 
duce. The rapid t^rowth of the Order and t'.K- constant in<|uiries re-ardm- its 
history and principles. makes it a duty imperative upon every true lilk to study and 
make 'himself familiar with all matters concernino- the Organization, so that he 
may i)e ahle without hesitation to impart all desired information. To enal.le him 
to attain this end this volume is res|)ecifully snhmitted. 

The growth of the Order has hecn phenomenal. Having a memhership at this 
writing o"f nearly 200.000 memhcrs, 57 new lo.lges having heen added this paM 
vear making a total of 8yi lodges all in good standing. 

Considering that onlv one Lodge of Elks is allowed in any city, and that cities' 
uf less than 5000 inhahitants are not eligihle to leceive a charter, this is remarkahh;. 
The Klks can consistentlv claim as good, representative and select a da- ol 
mc'^ihe'-s!,ip as anv fraternal' organization in existence, accnintcd for nioMlv hy 
the law all.nving onlv one lodge in a city. The efficiency of this ruling is further 
displaye.l in the great numher of lodges that are i.rovi.ling cluh houses tor th.eir 


This would he a prohihitive feature were miscellaneous organization per- 
missahle Anv white male citizen of the United State, of good character and 
Ma.uling in his ;ommunity and in health, who has reached the age of tv ent;. -<.ne 
vears. is eligihle to memhership. 

■ Each lod-e is allowed to fix the price of initiation fee. which vanes, at the 
present time, 'from $15.00 to $.00.00. The ( )rder of Elks is not a henehcial one 
at least no henefits are specified, and no lodge r.hligates itself to exten.l any. 1 he 
j-Tks however, have estal.hshed a reputation for .lispensing chanty-lxnh among 
its own memhership and otherwise. There is only one real .secret m tlie ( )rder o. 
JUks. and it is one that everv Elk is con^taiuK taught to ol.serve. namely, to keep 
sacred the name of a hrother receiving aid or relief fmin the ( )rder. 

The Origin and Purposes of the Order. 

Till'* ()I\I)l'".k ( )!•■ I'",LI\S is a chilli (if AiiKTica. and (hk- nt its iMlilcst 
()fts|irin|:^-s. It i-i:iil(l iml lia\c liccii ik-visixl li\ the mind nl mail under any 
other ciiiiditi'Mis than tlmse that exist in uur free country and under our 
free institutions. It lias ikj ranks and titles; it is no respecter of persons. 
All i-Jks are e(|uai. differinij only :.s one may excel another in lovinjj the sjood 
and heautifnl. and in ])erfor:ilinjj noble deeds in silence and \vitli(nit parade. Its 
])rimar\- object is to succor those in sickness and distress, and to liel]) the weak 
and unfortunate and cheer the despoiident. 

FoUouin:; uKidestly in the train of this j,M-and purpose are other aims that 
aid in its fulfillment by teaching men how :o live, by frequent intercourse under 
pro])er restraint, that curb selti.siiness and excess, and which tell men how to enjoy 
the s'ood things of life witliout abuse. Tiic founders of tlie ( )rder had no concep- 
ticnidf the sctipe and ])ossibilities of the ])rescnt ors:anizati:.ii. They never (h-eamed 
of its greatness, but they are entitled to and deservinij- of every credit for sownig 
the seeds that have imxluced such manihceiu and -ratifyini;- results. They 
■■builded wiser than they knew." 

The first lodj^e of klks was orij^anized on May Ji. i8(>S, on the second lloor 
of a two-storv frame buildin.!.;-. at Xo. jy Delancy Street, New York City. It was 
coiii|)osed oiiiv of a few ,y:emlenien of the theatrical ])n)fession. drawn toij:ether 
for social iiilercourre. It has now developed into a wide-spread and powerful 
( )rder of Ueiievoknce and Charity, with lodfje.- in ei.ybt hundred and ninety-one 
of the princi]ial cities of the l/nion. 

r.oru of bn;therlv love, and aiminjj U) i)ro.iiote tlie l)rotherliood of man, it is 
designed to offer to its memiiers the certainty of warm hearts and welcome liearths 
in the various cities to which bnsiiK>s or pleasure may summon them. One can 
well realize the satisfaction of hndin"- in every city a little circle of kindred minds: 
kind. ai)preciative and imelhscnt friends; .social spirit>. who. linked to.irether liy 
the mvstic tie. extend the ri^lit hand of fellowsliip and srect yon with the kindly 
smile of iirotherlioo.l. 

The idea has become jirevalent that none but members of the theati^ical 
profession and its dependencies are eli.uible to membershi]) in the ( 'rder. This is 
erroneous. It is true that nearly all of the rei)utable male ])ortion of the jirofession 
are me.nbers; but on tl;e roll of'membershiii will be found the names of |)i-ominent 
officials, merchants, bankers, journalists, Icijal and medical men. and the brislit 
liij-hts of the world in art. literature and music. 

Tlie social c muctiou. the ojiportunity to brill!:;- the brothers into a clearer 
conce])tion of the true claims for consideration of its members, is only one object 
of the ( )rder of I'.lks. I'.rotherlv l.ove and justice are not the bri-litest jewels in 
the crown of a wortliv member. Charity shines forth prominently m all their 
actions, the beacon Udu that .i^aiides them from the slioals of reckless liberality and 
the quicksands <<\ proverbial iirodiiialitx . It is neulles> to refer to the well-known 
•■■enerous charitv of this ( irder. whenever occasion demands its aid. Scarcely 
can the cr\ of ilislress echo on the .-lir. the wail of misfortune, or the moan of 
d'esiiair summon assistance, ere the I'.lks tender the best efforts to aid and relieve, 
questioninu- neither countr\ nor creed, doctrine nor belief.

confidences never to i)e divnl<;ed. .\iid this fully explains the reason for the one

In the year 1867 Charles .Mi^ernon Sidney \ ivian. the son of an lin,L;lish 
clergyman, of the e.-;tahlishcd Church, arrixed in Xew ^'ork City. He was a l)allad 
sin,i;er and two days after his arrival obtained an ens:;agemeut at i!utler"s .\merican 
theatre, .\'o. 472 iiroadway. X'ivian l)oarded at Mrs. Giesman's. .\"o. 188 Elm 
Street. .At the same house were a number of actors and musicians and in the 
winter of 1867-68 the male lioarders of .Mrs. Ceisman met on Sundav afternoons 
and s|)ent the time in social intercmu'se. .\t one of these convivial natherintjs 
\ ivian proposed that a permanent social orsjani/ation be formed. The sus;g;Cstion 
was favorablv acted u|)on and earh- in the winter of the same vear the orj.janization 
was formed and given tlie name of "jolly Corks," either from the corks that Hew 
from the bottles on tlie occasion of tlieir meetins^s or because of their connection 
with the minstrel and theatrical |jrofession. 

\ ivian was the first "Right Honorable i'rimo" of the "Jolly C<3rks," as the 
presiding ofilicer was officially designated. Of tlie forty who constituted the mcm- 
l^ersbip at that time, in addition to Charles .\. S. \'ivian, there were: W. L. 
liowron. T. Oatton Riggs. Cicorge W. Thom|ison. Tony Pastor, Henrv ()'.\eil, 
Hugh ()'.\"eil, George F. McDonald, Henry \andemark, William Sheppard. 
Th(5mas C.ayuor, Fernando I'astor. Ceorge W. Rockafeller, James Cdenn, Claude 
C.oldie and John .Mulligan. The new organization was very ])opular from its 
inception and soon the parlor of .Mrs. Giesmans boarding house was too small 
to accommodate the members who met every Sunday afternoon. .Xew ((uarters 
were secured at a house kejjt by I'aul Summers at No. 29 Delancy Street. The 
"Jolly Corks" grew in numbers rapidly and it was at Summers' ])lace that a 
reorganization was effected and the name changed to the "Benevolent and Protec- 
tive ( )rder of Elks." 'I'his im])ortant event took place on Sunday, February 10, 
1868. The selection of a new name was left to a committee of five. \'ivian and 
X'andemark were members of the committee. \ ivian suggested the name of 
■I'luffaloes." but the three .\mericans on the committee insisted that the new order 
slioidd be tluiroughly .American. Some of the members of this committee 
happening to meet at l'>arnum"s ( )ld .Museum were favorably struck by tiie 
a|)pearauce of a fine elk's head whicli was suspended in a conspicuous place. In 
looking up the historv of the elk the chairman became deeply impressed by the 
descri|)tion oi the animal in Goldsmith's ".Animated .Vature" and r)uflfon',s^"Xatural 
History," where it is described as "Fleet of foot and timorous of doing wrong, 
avoiding all combat exce|)t in fighting for the female and in defense of the young, 
l.elpless and weak." His researches and re])t'ri confirmed the committee in their 
choice of the name of "Elks" for the new organization. The elective officers' titles 
in the new onler were: Right Honorable I'rimo: First. Second and Third DepiUy 
I'nmo-: Honorary Secretarv. Ci rre>ponding Secretary, Treasm^er, and Tiler.

( Jrder has rendered necessary a number of clianj;es and additions, the Constitution 
as adopted in 1868 is substantially the basis of b"lk jurisi)rudence today. 

Mr. \ivian. as Rii,dit llon<iral)le I'rinio, presided at the tirst session of the 
newlv orijanizcd Order, but on leaving New York for I'hiladelphia, he was 
succeeded bv Ivichard K. Steirly. .\ew members were enrolled at each succeedin-;!: 
meetinj^ anil more suitable (luarters were soon obtained on the upper floor ot 
Military Hall, Xo. iy3 I'.owerv. ( )n .\pril ](>. i8C>8, tlie tirst ball oi the Order 
was .Lri'ven at Farrcro's Assenibly Rooms at the corner of Kroadway and 28th 
Street on the site of the present Fifth .\veuue 'i'heatre. The first annual benefit 
was held at the Academy of Music on June 8ih. and in tlie amiouncemeuts there 
was an ajijjarent effort to i^iye the Order an exclusiyely theatrical character: the 
orit^inal notices announcing; the first annual benefit of the " Performers rieneyoleni 
and I'rotectiye Order of I'llks." The attemjit wa> not successful and the Order 
contniued to enroll members in larse numbers :md of yarious professions. In an 
article from the pen of lion. W. C. \an Derlip, of I'.oston, Mass., Lodge on the 
••h:iks Rest," which we copy from the Flks Annual Register of 1893, appears the 
following on Charles .\lgeron Sidney \'iyiau, whose picture we pruit in this 
work : 

"In the center of the "Klk's Rest.' directly behind the bronze Elk, lie interred 
the remains of Charle.s .\lgernon Sidne\ Vivian, the founder of the Order of Elks. 
He was the son of an Enghsh clergyman, who belonged to the Established Church. 
He was an actor, gifted with a wnndeiful yoice, of a cheerful, sunny nature. 
and was one of heniost versatile men in his profession. He died in LeadviUe, 
Col.. March 20, 18S0, of pneumonia, when it was the center of the gold excitement, 
at tlie a"-e of 34 vcars. The funeral took place Sunday, March 21, 1880, and. was 
a splcndi.l affair for that region, the Knights of Pythias taking charge of the 
ceremony The casket holding his remains was the most expensive that could be 
obtained', and cost six hundred dollars. The whole population of the town turned 
out with a band of music, and accomiianied his remains to the cemetery. 

-On March 17 1889. it was brought to the attention of P.oston Lodge, by 
P.rother Thomas A.'Oaly, that \iyian was buried at Leadville, and that the grave 
was unmarked, save by a slab of w.)od, <;n which lus name was scratched \vitn a 
nail. Previous to this P.rother Allen O. Myers, then the editor ot the Socu;/ 
Session, had called the matter to the attention ot I'.rothcr \\ . C. \ an Uerlip. 
chairman of the P.oard of Grand Trustees, who reported the facts to I.oston 
Lodge and Hrother .Mvers was re<|uested. when he visited Denver and Leadville, 
to forward the remains to I'.oston for interment, it possible, l.rother A vers 
visited Leadville. and on behalf of P.oston Lo.lge, and aided by members o the 
Denver Lo.lge. and P.rother William F. PlcIicI, of Omaha Lodge, cause.l the 
remains to be taken up an.l forwar.le.l to P.ostnu. P.rother P.cchel having kindly 
procurred free transportation for the same, They were re-mterred m the lUk s 
Rest.' at P.oston. Mass.. A|iril 28. i88<,." 

Until 1871 \"ew York Lodge con.siiiuted all there was of the Order, but the 
fame of the great uork being .lone by it spread far hevoml the limits ol the city 
an.l attracted the attention an.l a.lmiratu.n ..1 -ulier cities. In iS,o 1 hila. clpma

Atlantic Citv lias enjoyed the high privilege and distinction of entertain- 
ing t'.ie Grand Ledge on three occasions ; Cincinnati twice and lUiffalo will have 
had it twice after the next meeting. The migratory meetings— the swinging 
around the cicle— has probablv done more to enthuse the members and build up 
lodges ill the sections where the meetings have been held, than the most heroic 
individual efforts could have accomplished. 

The Order of Elks has manv beautiful sentiments, but the most beauti- 
ful is that of the Eleven O'clock Toast, when at that hour wherever there 
are Elks gathered in social intercourse tbev drink to "(Hir Absent I'.rothers. 
I'.rothers fjoth in the natural and social order, cannot but be moved at this

pass her bw but each week new recruits are galliere<l into llie ranks of the order 
llial not onlv teaches but practices the nolilo virtues of Charity and I'.rotherly 
I.ove with Fidi'litv ;ind in Justice.

hercnt strength of its i)rinciples. its jiossihle inlhunee. nor its masnificent tjrowth 
and o-rand future. 'i"he most sanj^uine dreamer among- the scanty menihershii) of 
the P.oliemian ))and did not hope I'or more than a l"e\v [.odges in larger cities, and 
they thought the letters of the aljihahet would sul'lice to designate all that would be 
created, and Cincinnati Lodge was given "I-.."' the fifth letter, wliich was after- 
ward changed to "Xo. 5." Among the |)ai)ers is a letter dated March 3. 1877. 
written by 1'.. C. I'.rowne. the Treasurer of Tony I'aMor's Company, on the letter- 
head of the Metroiiolitan Hotel. Xew York City. In this he savs: -I am more 
than proud of my l>al.y. Cincinnati Lodge Xo. 3. You must know that Marry 
P.arton and myself are the iiarents of your Lodge. A few words at Chicago last 
summer led to the formation of Xo. 5." 

During the tall of i87r. a charter list I'or the new Lodge was circulated, and 
the following names apjjcar in handwriting of the signers, on the original paper 
which was found among the cast-aside papers:

Lodtje was instituted with twenty-t\\o me uhers. olticers were elected and installed. 
and Cincinnati Loc1l;t .\'o. 3 was launclied upon the uncertain seas of a .ijreai 
cit\'. which has sw allow eil ii|) so many similar ventures. It will he nut iced that 
the first niemherslii]) was composed chielly of the actor and the journalist and his 
friends. These were the hritjht and L;ifte<l chiklren of lioheniia, ever williufj with 
their talents to tjrace any social and festive occasion, and always read\- to (ipeii 
hands and hearts and pockets to aid the weary children of men, who touched the 
chord of pity by the cry of distress. It is about this time that one of the first grand 
officers, Thos. Iv Carret. an old news])aper man of St. Louis, said in his annual 
address : "This ( )rder springs naturally out of liunian need — sociability. It is now 
ill the period of transition from the chrysalis of one profession, and is now taking 
on the wings of all. It has advantages that no other secret order possesses. It 
has enrolled among its members the lirightest and keenest intellects of the day ; 
no other known order or socict}' holds such resources within itself, and herein is 
our supreme advantage. .May we carry the work forth until we have a home in 
every city or town in the land where there are people honest enough to laugh, 
and of sufficient cultivation to feel the need of social communion and rational 
amusements." This hope has been more than realized in the years that have fol- 
lowed its utterances, for in more than 850 of the leading cities of the United States 
there is a Lodge of Elks, and Cincinnati Lodge has done more than her share in the 
splendid result achieved. Ko. 5 had her ne.xt meeting in Odd Fellows' Lagle 
Hall, Corner Eighth and Central .\venues, Sunday evening. January 14, 1877. 
The $22 worth of property was cared for and was carried from ])lace to place in a 
small chest. On Sunday evening. Eebruary 25. 1877. the Lodge gave its first 
social session. It was a ladies' social, the first given by an Elk Lodge, and it was 
attended by an elegant audience. It was jiresided over by John D. Evans, since 
flead. who delivered a beautiful address that not only touched the audience, but 
charmed and delighted Elks of the other Lodges in the young ( )rder. For its 
success in this first entertainment. Cincinnati Lodge won commendation from the 
drand ( Xihcers. and was given the title of the "Silk Slricking" Lodge. 'I'lie jiress 
the next da\ contained very llattering notices of the I'"lks. but this meeting on 
Snnda\ alarmed and pained the good brothers among the Odd Fellows, and the 
Trustees of Eagle Hall adopted resolutions and ordered the Elks to vacate. This 
the IClks prom])tlv did, and Charley Thompson and the little chest became wander- 
ers until a committee secured the lease of tiic hall from the Odd Fellows at the

;nid the Cr.-md, on \.i\eiiiher ,S. i.Sj;. with l';iir results. The initiation was first 
hxed ;it Sjo. and the ;innual dues at .'^d a year. The social .sessions were .generally 
made sell-sustainin- l.y ihe hues imposed. There was not much attention paid 
to liusiuess or details dnrino- the early days of the Lodge's existence. On July 
1.^. 1N77. the Kinauce Committee niadc its first report. In tliat time ^934 "hail 
heen received, of which Slctj was for dues and ^815 for initiations. Of this 
amount .S70S.35 had heen e.\pen<led for properties, rents, socials, etc., leaving- 
^--5-45 111 llic trea-ui\. Complaint was made that few members had paid their 
dues, and the acconnis were reported hadly kept, and more hnsiness-like methods 
were urged. This i^ the curse of all secret societies. .\ great many men who 
are luisiness men, godil husiuess men, join henevolenl organizations, and .seem 
to think that tlie\ c;in he run on ;i hn.tlierly love hasis. Charity is a i)oor hook- 
keeper. Xd lodge, (ir ;iny organiz.-ition. can pros]ier until run upon the strictest 
and most exacting business princijjles. 

Cincinnati J.odge staggered under a great load of abuses, until her affairs 
were put ui)0n a l)usiness basis, since which time it has prospered in a manner 
gratilyiiig to all interested. The Lodge moved along for several vears, living an 
uneventlul existence, growing in members, but not gaining strength. It went 
up and down until 1883. when its treasury was .sacked by an unfaithful official, 
and it looked for a time as though the Lodge must go under. The mistake was 
made of reducing the initiation fee. and an inllu.x of membership began that 
proved very detrimental and harmful. A few members clung to the" charter 
during the darkest hours, when there was not money enough to pay the rent, 
and some members iiecanie di.sgusted and abantloned the Lodge to the certain 
demise wliicli seemed to await it. ]!ut it began to pick up slowly in 1883. and 
gathered strength, until the Lodge was again bankrupt liy the failure of the 
Fidelity I'.ank in 1S87. The Lodge had invested all of its surplus funds in the 
stock of this bank, and was held by the C.ovcrnment as a stockholder. But the 
good timber in the Lodge stood true, the Lodge steadily grew and prospered until 
now it is one of the most nourishing organizations in our citv, and has contributed 
more than any Lodge of any other Order to the prosi)erity and good name of Cin- 
cinnati by its hospitality to tlie strangei who tarries within our gates.

that the Lodge itidorsed the action of 
I resolution itnaniniously adopted, the 
Committee was continued with 
fitll power to act in making 
contracts for retiKxlcling and 
fitrnishing the building. In 
conctirrctice with said resolu- 
tion, platis atul specifications 
u ere prepared, the work of re- 
construction successfully car- 
ried through to completion

and dedicated to lilk purposes 
July 6. i8yS. 

In appreciation of tlie ser- 
vices rendered by this Com- 
mittee the Lodge has Iiad con- 
spicuously placed iti the en- 
tratice hall of the building a 
tablet of comtiiemorative 
bronze, a re])roduction of 
which in ditninitive is here 
given. In connection with the 
acquisition of the Tetnple. the Conitiiittee in its report states that between the dates, 
necembcr 31. 1897 — the 21st anniversary of the Lodge — and .March. 1899. a 
jieriod of fifteen months, the membership increased from 43C) to 601 and the cash

circles, were taken in in a class on the da\' of the dedication of tiie 'reuipie. Added 
to the above receipts there was $6,000 reahzed from tlie two minstrel performances 
of March, i.SyS and 1899. Aiul tluis from these varions sources the Lodge was 
enabled to pay on the total cost of the Temple of $31,0:10 the sum of $30,000, of 
which amount $23,000 was accumulated entirely within the period from January 
I. 189S to March 14, 1899. As staled this would nut have been accomplished but 
fur the faithful manner in which the members generally iesi)onded to the ilemands 
made on their lime and means to carr_\' out the suggestions and schemes which re- 
sulted in th;it splendid achievement — the lUk's Temple of Cincinnati. 

The Chairman of the Committee ,to whom more than any cither individual 
member crcflit is due for giving to the Lodge its magnificent home, closes his report 
with well deserved praise of tlic then Secretary. Frank T. Hier, for the 
ever willing and efficient services rendered the Huilding Committee, concluding 
with these words: "There is no honor within the gift of the Lodge tliat will be 
too great a reward for his services." thus foreshadowing and inviting the action 
iif tlie Lodge, in less than two years afterwards, of exalting him to its highest 
position of dignity and honor. 

Credit is due Cincinnati for being the first lodge of the Order to erect a me- 
morial tablet in honor of its dead. It is a magnificent work of art and was first 
suggested by a small emblematic design of the Order prepared on glass by Lud- 
wig Holzschuch. the great Mmiich glass painter who afterwards became a mem- 
ber of Cincinnati Lodge. The Illks' Annual Rc;^istcr of 1893 thus describes it: 
"It is a inaitcrpiccc nf art and glass painting, perfect in composition as well 
as in e.xccntion. Tlic richly carved fiamc of antif|ne oak forms a Greek temple 
portal ; in llie opening of this appears tlic tablet, lighted up in the rear by arti- 
ficial light, in a fairy-like bcanty. The arrangement of color and light brings 
forth a sucet harmony, neither affecting ihc eye nor the snrroinidings. The 
tablet proper is 3^x0 feet, while tlie heavy oak frame is 12x6. The ar- 
rangement of the names of the .'Vbsent Brothers at the iM-ittom is snch that their 
movement, althongb transparent and in harmony with the other parts of the 
tablet, docs not interfere with llie pictiux. and new names can be added and 
bnrned in by any glass or china painter. 'I'he mechanical part of the tablet is 
faultless, using the best material and making it strong enough to last for several 
centuries. The glass part is leaded trigcther of over aOO pieces fastened with 
iron bars in a separate rack whicli then is put in the carved oak case." 
As evidenced by the long list of "Our Absent Brothers," page 32, the grim 
reaper has been busy in the ranks of Cincimiati Lodge, usually simimoning the 
best beloved of the memliers to appear before the Crand I'.xaltcd Ruler of all, 
every one of whose names are recorded in ineffaceable letters of fire on this me- 
morial tablet of the lodQc.

History of Columbus Lodge No. 37. 

Nlv\kL\' ciylilCL-ii jL-aib agu, Scplcmbcr 18, 1885, Columbus Lodge No. 37 
I'.cncvolcni I 'roluclivc Uider of Iilks was instituted under dispensation 
granted September 7, same year, by tjrand Hxaited Ruler Henry S. Sand- 
er>on upon application of Uros. Harry La Rose, of Hartford Lodge No. 19; 
II. C. Lrancisco, of Washington No. 15; W . 11. Streakle, of Indianapolis No. 13; 
Dr. J. J. McClellan, of Chicago Ncj. 4 and I'eter Cale, of Cincinnati No. 5. The 
institution which took place in Odd Lellow's Tem])le High street, was conducted by 
.Marion Lodge No. 32, Grand Lxalted Ruler Sanderson officiating, assisted by 
many of the most notable members of the order from Cincinnati, I'ittsburg, Chi- 
cago, Newark and i\e\v York Lodges, among those of the last named lodge 
besides the officiating Grand Jixalter Ruler, being the world wide famous min- 
strel, Tony i'astor. Dr. J. J. .McClellan of Chicago No. 4, one of the sponsors of 
the new lodge was present at its birth and soon after became by demit — and has 
continued since to be — one of its most active, enthusiastic and representative mem- 
bers. In )ears of membership Dr. McClellan is tiie oldest Llk in Columbus Lodge. 

The following were charier members; Chas. A. .Miller, James G. Miller, 
Ur. W. VV. Freeman, Wm. 11. MclJermith, J. S. Layer, C. C. Harrison, VV. L. 
Reppert, W. D. Turner, |. 11. Nagle, T. VV. Ukey, .Martin O'Donnell, R C.

I'inney, J. Nagle, Dr. Heustis, 11. Whiting, L. .V. Comstock, Herbert Cawthorne 
and H. Lippert. Of these charter members Jas. G. .Miller, .Martin (J'Donnell, 
R. C. Hull, Gen. McCauley, 11. Lippert and F. A. Comstock haxe passed 
into the great beyontl. 

The charter officers were: Charles .\. .Miller, l-'xalted Ruler; T. VV. Okey, 
Esteemed Leading Knight; Dr. \V. VV^ Freeman, Esteemed Lo^al Knight; R. E. 
Hull, Esteemed Lecturing Knight; \\ . C. \\ ikoft, Secretary; James G, Miller, 
Treasurer; G. VV. Jackson, Tiler, and C. D. Hinman, C. C. Harrison and VV. D. 
Turner, Trustees. 

The history and fortunes of Columbus Lodge have not been different from 
other lodges in newly organized fraternal societies. For three years the lodge 
enjoyed an era of prosperity and quiet bonhomie, when discordant elements entered 
to ruftle the peaceful progress it had enjoyed, checking its happy continuance and 
almost disrupting and terminating its existence. Those were anxious days of trial 
for the loyal few who battled for the life of No. 37, but with undaunted courage 
they faced and conquered the warring elements and enjoyed the proud satis- 
faction of seeing their lodge emerge from the struggle stronger and better than 
before. During the rejunevation there were meeting nights when a quorum was 
only obtained by going out and running in enough members to organize the lodge, 
and when the tide seemed at its lowest ebb there were some who even urged tiie 
surrender the charter. 

Tiien it was that the devotion of the fathers of the l(~idge, joined to the zeal 
and self-sacrificing efforts of those who had later become associatctl with them.

came to the rescue, and Ijv ])crs( appeals in ami oui o\ ilic nlec^ing^ ol llie lodge, 
created an entlnisiasm and spirit that (|uickened the llayging interest, buried for- 
ever llie ihuuglit of disrujjtion and started the era of •;■( « kT frllowshii) and pros- 
perity which has continued to increase, until toda)- it is one of the most representa- 
tive lodges of the Order, both as to numbers and the per>onnel of it^ membership, 
it is not our i)urpose in this brief sketch of Cnlumbus Lodge to weave into 
garlands the good deeds performed by individual members or enlarge on the work 
resultant therefrom, both of which are written in golden letters on the remi- 
niscent pages of memory. To all tliose members, wIkj at this troublous time were 
faithful in the performance of their iluties and obligations to the lodge, the fullest 
mead of praise belongs. Three there were, however. Col. W. li. RepiJcrt, \V. II. .Mc- 
Dermith and Col. S. X. Cook, whose work though not more valiant or earnest tiian 
that of many others, was because of their intkience, more effective for which gener- 
ally acknowledged fact we deem them deserving of special mention. The progress 
of the lodge was gradual after the events above stated. Interest flagged at inter- 
vals afterwards, yet at no time was there any approach to disruption save the one 
time mentioned, in fact the membership of Columbus Lodge were never unfaithful. 
Much important work that has reilounded to the good of the order at large has 
been performed by members of Columbus Lodge. 'i'he second revision of the 
ritual was made by a member of Columlius Lodge ami to it belongs the credit 
for having originated the idea and for taking the initial steps in the winter of 1886 
for an annual gathering of Hlks, by the appointment of a committee to corre- 
spond with Cincinnati Lodge for that purpose — Cincinnati, .Marion and Colum- 
bus at the time being the only lodges in the state. Cincinnati Lodge acted promptly 
on the suggestion and a joint committee was appointed, under the direction of 
which the first annual reunion was held in Cincinnati. .May 22, 1886. .Members 
from the three Ohio lodges, Louisville, Ky. and Indianapolis. Ind. attended in large 
numbers and joined in a parade which favorably impressed the people and elicited 
l^raise from the press of the Oueen City. 

The ne.xt reunion, which was held in Detroit, Michigan, June 24-25, 1887, 
was arranged for by a joint committee of Ohio and Michigan lodges at a meeting 
held in Columbus, April 17, 1887. 

For a number of years the lodge rooms were in the Commercial Block 
on the forth floor. The steep stairs were a weary climb, yet those days are 
accounted happy ones by those who jiassed tlirough all their vicissitudes. 

Some five years were spent in the rooms in what was then known as the 
Stag Hotel, between liroad and State streets, opposite the capitol. 

It was not imtil 1898 the realization of hopes indulged in for _\ears seemed 
near, namely, suitable quarters t'or a lodge room. While the lodge had attained 
prominence nationally, it had not the standing locally outside of its immediate 
membership, its prominence and usefulness ilcserved. I'ossibly no lodge that stood 
so high in the order was so badly in need of a lodge room as Columbus Lodge was 
through all the years from its installation to the time of the building of the pres- 
ent home. 

In the year above named various schemes were put forth for procuring funds 
to secure a home for the lodge. l"inall\- the committee appointed to devise ways 
and means rccommendetl that the lodge give a street fair and carnival, week of 
July 4th, 1S99. The carnival was given. It attracterl the attention of persons 
in and out of the order all over the I'nited States, li was the second of the big 
street fairs given in this country and its immensity and attractiveness has never 
been equalled. People from all over the comitry x-isited Columbus during the week 
of this carnival anil fair. 1 'resident McKinley was to have visited the fair, but im- 
portant business of State detained him in Wasliington. William Jennings Bryan, 

C' Xo. 37. 

;i caiulidatc lor llu' presidency attended as the pucst of tlie Iml^'e. The lodge cleared 
more than twenty thousand ddUars. tne thousand nf wliicii was ^iveii to that ex- 
cellent cliaritw the Children's l]os])ital. and mil of the balance jinrchased the Klx'rly 
mansion, which was reiiKjdelcd into the ju'esent niayiiiticent home. The new edifice 
is one of the notalile Elk temples in the coiintr\. It is complete and convenient 
and a source of i)ridc to the entire membership.

of which was made dnrini;- his ailniinistration as Mxalted Ruler, the members of 
■^"- ,v .generally, give unstinted i)raise and credit. 

The Lodge was incorporated February 14. 1900. the incorporators being: 
Chester Stands, Ralph I'.ulkley. Martin E. ^[urphy, Edward H. Jacobs and Wil- 
liam \[. Crawford. 

In 1901 the lodge decided ti> give an annual benefit the latter jiart of De- 
cember in eacli year. As the attraction for the first atniual lienefit, "I,o\-er's Lane," 
was produced the week of December 2nd. The committee, wlio bad charge of 
the event, were Tod H. Calloway, chairman : .\ E. Shannon. (".. P>. Stearns, deo. ].

Is'ocli. Ed. A. C.ockeid)acli and .Malcolm .\. Karshner. Part of the proceeds of 
this benefit was devoted toward a luammotb Christmas tree for the poor children 
of the city, this feature being handled by the ladies of The Diet Kitchen. The 
success of these benefits was so j)ronounced as to attract attention nationally and 
the lodge is now being Hooded with oli'ers froni theatrical managers for the 1903 

The roster of Columbus Lodge is honored bx' the names of luen famous 
in all walks of life: among those attaining high distinction in the theatrical pro- 
fession being ,\1. C. Field. Charlev I'igelow, H. S. Cawthorn and the successful 
playwright. Charles Tl. ILnt. now dead. It stands as high in the councils of the 
( )rder as any lodge in the Order. Its ]irogress is assured. 

It has done more charitable work than any other fraternal society in the city 
of Columbus. Owing to the fact that the names of the wortbv. who receive 
aid from this order are kept secret, the outside world knows nothing of the 
great work the lodge has done. 

ICach year the Grand Lodge recognizes the worth and standing of Columbus 
Lodge b\- appointing some one of its members to a position of importance. 

Those who iiax'e been honored b\ the Cirand Lodge by election and appoint- 
ment at different times have been W. II. McDermith. Grand Esteemed Lecturing 
Knight: .M. C>. Field. Grand Ivsteemed Leading Knight and District Deputy, and 
the present chairman of Committee on Work and Ritual and Hon. Emniett Tomp- 
kins who was selected to defend the Grand Lodge in the suit of .Mien O. Myers 
against it. Pro. ]•'.. II. .\rcher was the |)resident of the Ohio Reunion .\ssociation 
which met at Columbus. May 13, \()Ot,.

History of Chillicothe Lodge No. 52. 

CIIII.I.IC()THE LODE Xo. 52 U. V. U. U. was ori,-anizcil uiukr special dis- 
pensation S<.'])teniber 16, 188'), and in the bej^iiniins^ there were scarcely 
enouj^^h nienibers to secure a charter, hut the jjrincijiles of the order appealed^ly to the better citizens of the town that it rapidly grew in membership. 

I he charter members were: Fleetwood Ward, G. W. Washburn. Jno. A. 
SomerN C. W. Robinson, C. M. Roberts, II. W. ( )rr, R. J. Loel, G. S. Lindley. 
j. .M. Leslie. C. !■:. Killets. Harry Hardy, F. Harper, H. C. Freese, Ed. C. Frey, St. 
Clair Cooke. T. S. Jjarnes. G. W. Ilulger, .\, W. lluckmaster, H. S. .\dams, George 
J. Snyder, ( ). H. Lemon. Charles I'into, W. S. I'.aldwin, E. B. Clifford, George 
I'.unnell. .\I. (".. i-'.vans. W. .\1. Koblenz, IC. R. .McKec, John Kirchenschlager, 
W. .\. Lewis, J. G. Hathaway, Ed. Kauffman, N. L. Gartner. Frank Henn. C. '/.. 
ICrdmaim, .\. S. Ewing, J. C. Douglass, W. Scott Clark and Gustav ISrickhammer, 
Frank Harper was the first l^xaltcd Ruler and Jno. .\. Somers the first Secretary. 

The watchword of the Lodge lias at all times been quality and not quantity 
and as a result, today numbers 200 of Chillicothe's most inlluential and representa- 
tive business and ])rofessional men. The Lodge was originally organized in small 
(|uarters in the Kaiser I'.lock, but ten years ago it moved to the commodious rooms 
in the I lousen and Carlisle lllocks and at present occupies the entire third floor, 
for l(j(lge and club room puri)oses. The furnishings in these rooms are among 
the handsomest in Ohio, and are tlie envy of many visiting I'^lks for whom the latch 
string is out at all times. 

Despite the handsome (juarters tiie lodge members are becoming restless and 
are clamoring for a home of their own, and the trustees of tlie fraternity are now 
securing options for that purpose and when that has been done the handsome 
nest egg which has been laid away year l)y \ear by various entertainments, all of 
which were always successful, will be brought into use and but little more will 
be needed. While the Lodge has been frugal it has also at all times contributed 
its n)ite to charily and many are the worthy deeds that have been accomplished. Of 
one iiarticular feature Xo. 52 is especially proud and that is during an initiation 
a ritual is never in evidence. Strangers who visit Xo. 52 on these nights are always 
impre^se(l with the beauty of the work. The lodge meets every Monday evening.

( )n Sunday afternoon, October 24, 1886, a beautiful day in Indian 
Suninier, a select coterie of Toledoans s^^athered in a small room in Toletlo and 
under the tijuidini;- hand of (jrand Exaltetl Ruler Daniel Kelley the Toledo 
of JUks was ushered into existence. 

Those of the charter mcmlx'rs who remember the day declare it was one 
of the most beautiful of the year and from the inspiration of Nature the ortjan- 
izers of Toledo Lodge caught the sjiirit of the movement. 

The Lodge was instituted in what was then known as Grand Arni\' I hill,

Although it is not recorded in the minutes of that or any subsequent meet- 
ing, still it is remembered that an impromptu social session was held after the 
Lodge had closed and tlie first social session of Toledo Lodge is said to have 
been the real thing. 

The second meeting of the Lodge was a special meeting held on October 
29 for the purpose of adopting the constitution and by-laws of Cleveland Lodge, 
pending the report of the Committee on Constitution. The regular communica- 
tion of the Lodge was held on the following evening. Saturday having been se- 
lected as tlie meeting night for the time being. The Trustees reported that 
Grand Army Hall had been secured for Lodge meetings and Saturday night 
selected for the meeting night. .\t this meeting it was decided to apply to the 
Grand Lodge for a charter,

With the-e officers Toledo l.inlge >I;ivled 1 in ils tirsl \ear. which w-as to ho 
mixed with success and adversilw It is related li\- the older members of the 
T.odge that those were the days of anxietv for the i-iien-ihers. The state of the 
treasury was oftimcs one of dec]> concern with ilie memhership. but withal there 
was a spirit of fellow-ship and fralei-nal love tluil is fnund onh- in a Lodge slrug-- 
gling- for existence and everv meiniicr willing to make any sacrifice that the Lodge 
might live. Membership grew slowly at first luii soon after the members beg-an 
to take an interest in the increasing- membership, harder work was exerted and 
the I.odg-e began to expand and at the san-ie time maintairiiiig; a rcmarkablv high 

.-\fter the selection of the officers of the first \-ear the meeting night w-as 
definitely fixed as Sunday. 

W'ith the rapidly growing menibershi|) the T.odg-e decided to move to better 
rpiarters before it had finished its first vear anrl the Trustees were again directed 
to secure a location. Tn 1SS7 quarters were secured on Superior street, over wdiat 
was known as the Natmal Oas Office. These were furnished and the Lodg'c 
was soon etisconced in its new- home. This proved to be a good move on the 
part of the Trustees and the men-ibership soon was gi\-en an intpetus — not In 
natural ga.s — but in interest and numbers. 

The last meeting held on Sunda\- was on Decciuber 26. \RRG. at wdiich meet- 
insT the bv-laws were arnendcd (o make the meeting night Thursday, and such 
if has reniained ever since. 

On Thursda\-. Decemlicr 2(). 18S7. the nucleus of I'indlay Lodge w-as formed 
b\- the admission to metiibershin in Toledo Lodge of ten citizens of Findlay. 
Thev were active later in forming Findlav T.odgc. Toledo is therefore consid- 
ered as the .\lnia Mater of that Lodj^'c. if the tern-i can be so used here. On 
fanuarv 12. 188S, these members were initiated under a special dispensation 
granted for thai iiurpose. On March 1:;. 188S. the Findlay Lodge w-as insti- 
tuted b\- Toledo T,odgc. Tn Xovemher of the sai-ne xear the Lodge received its 
first visitation of the grand officers C.rand F.xalted Ruler Leach having made 
it a point In be iiresent at the niectiup-. TTe \\as received in nroncr forni and 
was eritertained li\ a gi-anil social session after the closing of Lodge.

With v^irvine fortunes Toledo Lodge pursueil its wav, passing through all

3„d Captain oi .he Famous Cherry Pickers. 


Tom;uo .\o. 53. 

ihat was evciiuiall)' declared lu be the Grand Lodye do I'acto. After the Detroit 
reunion and Grand Lodge meeting, ^\•hen troublous times appeared for lilkdom, 
Toledo Lodge was loyal and refused to be drawn into the contention in any way, 
recognizing the grand officers that were elected in the regular manner and re- 
fusing to attend the peace conference called for Buffalo. The representative 
to the Grand Lodge that year attended the meeting called at Atlantic City and 
witnessed the surrender ot the recalcitrants. 

About this time the building fever struck the Lodge and a Building Com- 
mittee was appointed with instructions to prepare plans for a building and inci- 
dentally suggest a plan for financing it. This committee was composed of' 
Brothers C. l'. -Wall, J. J. Stone, Charles Stager, L. G. Richardson and V. J. 
Lmmick. The committee was discharged after its first report and the idea of 
securing new quarters taken up, with the result that a floor in the new Gates 
building was secured and fitted up for lodge rooms. This was retained until 
the Lodge moved to its present quarters in the Valentine Building. 

When the session of the Grand Lodge was held at Cincinnati in 1896, some 
of the members of the Lodge advocated the idea of competing for the street 
parade prize. A squad was hastily thrown together and with cheap uniforms 
they went into the parade and carried off the prize. This was the birth of the 
famous Cherry Pickers, the drill squad which afterwards became known from 
ocean to ocean, a picture of which is elsewhere shown. 

The Cherry Pickers were so dubbed by a local newspaper man on account 
of the color of their uniforms. A peculiar shade of red was used and this was 
identically the color of the uniforms worn by the First Regiment of Lancers 
British Army, which is known as the Cherry Pickers. 

The Cherry Pickers, in their new uniforms, made their first appearance at 
Minneapolis, where, after an exciting contest, they won the first prize, a hand- 
some silk banner. Louisville Lodge was the only competitor of the Toledo 
squad at this time. The ne.xt battle was fought at St. Louis, where the Cherry 
Pickers and the Louisville squad met for blood. Both drill squads were trained 
to the minute and had been trained as athletes. Captain William H. Cook was 
in command of the Toledo company, with J- Harvey Wylie as First Lieutenant 
and William H. .Atwill as Second Lieutenant. The Louisville squad was under 
the command of Major Leathers, one of the finest drillmastcrs the South ever 
produced. He announced before the contest that in the event of his defeat it 
would lie his last appearance on the drill ground. The teams drilled in the 
Coliseum on a tanbark floor, and in a stifling dust, and the Cherry Pickers won 
a most exciting contest by two points. On the return of the Cherry Pickers 
a reception was given to them and the streets were densely packed with humanity. 
.\t Milwaukee tiie Cherry Pickers were defeated by Chicago by a margin of 
seven-eighths of one point. The Chicago squad was known as the Purple Guard, 
but was in reality the crack drill team of the Knights Templar which had been 
initiated in a bodv two weeks prior to the Grand Lodge meeting. Toledo took 
second in street parade and second in drill at Milwaukee, took first in drill and 
second in street parade at St. Louis, first in drill at Minneapolis and first in street 
parade at Cincinnati. .Ml the money won in these contests was turned into the 
treasury of the Lodge and was the foundation of the building fund of the Lodge. 

To this money was added some $14,000 derived from two carnivals and the 
building committee purchased a piece of property facing McKinley Square for 
$1^,000. on wliicli will be erected a handsome home. Plans for this Iniilding 
have Iwen drawn and arc in the hands of the building committee. 

Toledo Lodge has a membership of fioo and is. financially and numerically, 
in the best of condition.

History of Voungslown Lodge No. 55. 

A.\I().\C. tile- pidniiiiciu li><li;cs cif the iHUcvdlcnt and I'mtictivc ( )r(lcr of 
l''.lks in ( )liic> none occupies a iiiurc exalted piisiiion than \'imn!^sl(j\vn 
l.iiiliL^e Xi). 35. Tlie liidgc was instituted October 23, ibl.Si). by Craiul 
lixalled Ruler Daniel E. Kelly of Baltimore Lodge Xu. 7 with a ciuirter list of 
(m, rei)resenting prominent professional and business men of the city, among 
whom were. Clatc A. Smith, Charles J.iel)man. C. J. Smith, Harry Hewett, James 
r. Wilson, C. M. Shart'er, Eugene Rook, J. J. llamman. [. Hd Leslie, I-'rank Mc- 
C"ay, W. J I. Adams, J. C. I'.rennan, D. (j. Evans, H. l! Preston, I). JrL Arnold 
and others whose names cannot now be recalled. The ceremonies were con- 
cludetl at midnight by the installation of the following charter officers: 

]ixalted Kuler, Clate A. Smith; Esteemed Leading Knight, A. J. Woolf; 
Esteemed Loyal Knight, Eugene Rook; Esteemed Lecturuig Knight, J. P. 
Wilson ; Secretary, Charles J. Smith ; Treasurer. Samuel Connell ; Tyler, D. H. 
.Arnold. The last named having continued tniinterruptedly in office during the 
.-seventeen years the lodge has existed. .Modest quarters were secured and fur- 
nished and for the first five years tlie lodge iiad a checkered existence, the sur- 
render of its charter for a time being feared by reason of a lack of finances to 
pi-operly sui)])ort and keep up the organization. I'ortunateh the executive 
staff was com])osed of men who had never scored a failure and u ith the few mem- 
bers they went down into tiicir pockets and placed the lodge on a sul)stantial 
financial basis and it may be said to their credit that it has never retrograded. 
While some other lodges of the Order have been compelled to surrender their 
charters and afterwards reorganize, Yoimgstown has ever been i)rogressivc and 
active. Much of this success is due to the fact that it has been fortunate in hav- 
ing Executive officers, who liave at all times worked for the success of the 
organization, and in building up the membershi]) the object aimed at has been 
(|uality and not quantity. 

While the lodge had for several years as tine (piarters as any secret society 
in the city, the rapidly increasing membership demanded larger and more suit- 
able quarters for their greater comfort, convenience and entertainment, and so 
about tw'O years ago it was decided unanimously by the members that the lodge 
should have a home of its own that should be a credit to it and to the great 
world of Elkdom. The Elks Building Company was organized in Xovembcr iqoo. 
with a capital of $30,000 and it is worthy of note that every dollar of the 
stock was taken bv the members shortly after the books were opened for sub- 
scriptions. In addition to this the lodge had accumulated fimds from benefits atid 
entertainments given at various times and from other sources, amounting to 
$10,000. A lot was purchased commanding a magnificent view of the city for 
$11,500 and i)Ians promptly prepared and contract awarded for the erection 6f 
one of the finest Elk Club buildings in the Ignited States. Excellent progress was 
made on the building during its construction and when dedicated. October 23, 
1902. the sixteenth anniversary of the Lodge, it rejiresented an investment of 
fully $90,000 all contributed by the members of Xo. 35. The following arc the 
officers of the Elk Building Company, incorporated Xov. loth. irpo: 

President. John P. Hazlett : Vice President. Edmond fl. Moore; Secretary. 
1'. A. Simpkins": Treasurer. Clark H. Kennedv : Dircctnrs. Rand;dl Alontgomery. 
I'.il. I-".. Miller. Chas. T. Little. Cms A. Docright. Thomas 1*.. Cmnell. Clatc A. 

In addition |o the fact that the Building Comjiany is composed altogether of 
members of the Lodge, the architects and contractors for the construction of the 
various parts of the building are also its members, and the superior excellence of

History of Mansfield Lodge No. 56. 

MAXSFIELD Lodge, \o. 56, uliicli was instilutod .\o\cniber 22. 1886, at 
that time held the (hstinctioii of havint::- t''e largest charter membership 
of any lodge that had been instituted, the mnnber of charter memlxjrs 
initiated being seventy. 

The institution was conducted by brothers from Cincinnati. Columbus and 
Marion, the work Ijcing performed during the da\- and the festivities being 
closed with the most elaborate banquet ever spread in the city, the degree work 
and banquet taking place in the Castle Mall of the Knights of I'ytbias. For a 
time the lodge held its sessions in the Knights of Honor and the G. A. R. halls, 
but interest began to wane and it became evident that the lodge must have its 
own home if it was to thrive. Accordingly means and ways were devised and 
through the active efforts of the niembers. through a minstrel benefit ])erforni- 
ance for a nucleus fund and later by cash subscriptions from members aggre- 
gating over $1,000 the lodge felt justified in leasing f|uai"ters in a block then 
Iniilding, which, by arrangements with the builders, themselves \-.\k>. were fasli- 
ioned to suit tiie needs of the F.Iks ami these (piarters, handsomely furnished, 
and added to from time to time have remained tlie home of the local Flks ever 
since their first occupation, which was on .April 12. 1S8S. The ((uarters include 
a handsomely furnished lodge r(K>m, witli all the necessary reception rooms, 
a smoking room, banquet hall, billiard and card rooms, a coni])letely furnished 
kitchen, with china, linen, silverware and all tilings necessary to serve a banquet 
to several hundred people. 

The Lodge early instituted the social features which have made it. ]iar ex- 
cellence, the leading social organization of the city and membersliip is eagerly 
sought, although quantity rather than quality has invariably been the rule of 
the lodge in the election of its members and as a consc<|uence the Lodge ]>cr- 
sonnel includes the leading business, professional and society men of tlie city. 
Stag socials arc frequently held, with open house on Thanksgiving Day and 
New Years, with numerous exclusively male assemblages at various times dur- 
ing the vear. an initiation invariably being the occasion for an informal luncheon, 
but it is the ladies' social sessions, which are held about every two weeks during 
the 'fall and' winter, that has given the order a standing that makes it the popular 
one among the women of the city and they are anxious to liavc their husbands, 
sons, brothers or gentlemen friends members of the ( )r(ler. 

Not alone in social features does the local lodge excel, but whatever it under- 
takes in the line of entertainments is a gnarantee for something good. The 
lodge has given numerous minstrel shows, comic operas and other entertain- 
ments, in part, or wholly bv its own membership, and all liave been successes 
of most pronounced type. When the street fair was in its infancy the local 
Elks conducted one. with Afidwav and German village feature^, which even un- 
reasonable opponents before the hecinning of the same were objirred to confess 
was almost unobjectionable before the close. Whatever the local F.Iks undertake 
is well (lone and tliev have the unlimited confidence and respect i>f the public. 

WHiile Flks do not boast of their charitable deeds it is well known in Mans- 
field that the Flks are ever ready and willing to do their full share in any 
cliaritable or public work and all this serves to furtlicr popularize the Order. 

The present lodge membershiii is about 275. Of the seventy original cbar-

E. G. Robinson aiul D. C. Casselnian, tiic first named brother, wiio was the first ex- 
alted ruler of the lodge, having served with distinction in many grand lodge ses- 
sions, at most of which he has been honored with positions on grand lodge commit- 
tees. 1 le also served as district deputy for Ohio and during his term instituted sev- 
enteen hulges. his work iieing of the nature that gave the order high stan'd- 
ing in the state and led up to the ])roud distinction the state has since main- 
tained of having more high grade lodges than any other state in the I'nion. 
in recognition of his services to his own lotlge and to the order at large honor- 
arv life membership was conferred upon Brother Clugston by Mansfield Lodge 
September 2. i>j02, at the first session of the lodge held after the return of 
r.rother Clugston from Salt Lake City wliere he served as the representative 
of Xo. 56 at the grand lodge session of 1902. Hon. Manuel .May, former judge 
of common jileas court, the oldest member of the lodge, unable to attend its ses- 
sions longer, on account of the infirmities of age was also honored by a life mem- 
bership in the lodge. Judge May tlied June 22. 1903. 

The following is the charter roll of members: T. R. I'.arnes, d. H. Blecker, 
I. ('.. I'.onar, VV. S. Cappeller, Carpenter Reid, G. A. Clugston, J. H. Craig, A. B. 
Dittenhoefer, \V. A. Harbeson, A. J. lleineman. E. Stokes lleistand, H. A. Leech, 
W. L. Leonard, fames McCov, F. S. Ozier, Lerov Larsons. Charles Ritter, Jesse 
A. St. John. C. \V. Upson, J. E. Upson, W. T. Wi'lHs. 

The Charter Officers who were installed on the night of the institution were: 
George A. Clugston, Exalted Ruler; A. ]'>. Dittenhoefer, Esteemed Leading 
Knight; John C. Burns, Esteemed Loyal Knight; IC. S. Iliestand, Esteemed 
Lecturing Knight; F. A. Johnston, Secretary; J. H. Rice, Treasurer; E. A. Bleck- 
er, Tyler; J. A. Hawkins, Esquire; S. C. Clark, Inner Guard; Rev. .\. J. Dunlap, 
Chaplain; Wm. Ackcrman, .\. J. Mack, John Krause, 'J'rustees. 

The years 1902-03 and 1903-04 were red letter jieriods in the history of 
Mansfield Lodge. Following the installation of 1). C. Casselman as Exalted 
Ruler, his fine ability as an executive and his masterly skill in the ritualistic 
work, aided by a splendid corps of officers, was funlier supplemented by the 
active work of A. L. Cameron in securing new members, his individual work in 
that line resulting during the last two years in the reception into the locltje o' 
over one hundred new members recrnted from the very cream of the business, 
professional and six'ial life of the city, the present meml>ership siiowing the 
highest personnel grade of any order in the city. 

So high was the appreciation of the work done by lirotber Cameron that 
without opposition and unanimously he was elected Exalted Ruler in 1903 and 
the lodge year was marked by the greatest activity the Lodge has ever known, 
the utmost harmony prevailing and the lodge attendance the greatest it has ever 

I".arly during his administration the long contemplated ])urpose of securing 
a lodge home took definite form and the purchase was consummated of the fine 
residence propert\' of r.rother .\. J. Heincman at the corner of Third an<l Mul- 
berry, two blocks from the principal business thoroughfare and one block from 
tlie finest residence street in the citv. The Lodge bought the pr(>])erty. which has 
90 feet frciiit on Third and iSo feet on Mulberry and contains a large two- 
story and atlic brick resick'iice admirabh adapted for club and social rooms, for 
$12,500. tile purchase |)rice of which was rai^ed within a few months. .-\ 
committee is now at work, in conjunction with the trustees and an architect, ar- 
ranging for a sliglit remodeling of the residence and the erection of an ad- 
dition thereto, the latter building to contain lodge rooms, reception and cloak

eral IkiU, banqnet, reception and cloak rooms, the idea being to have an home 
to be used exclusively by the lilUs and their ladies, and at the same time to have 
the most eleyaait social (|iiarters in the city, which will be used b\ the hlks in 
addition to the club parlors and all accessories upon the occasion ol their extra

aiul regularly organized societies which may desire In-tter and liner accomma-

be [lushed rapidly during the year 1904 and that before Jannary 1. i')i>3, the 
l'"lks will be in their new home.

iiover made a failure of anything they have undertaken. \\'liil\ man\ new mem-

The Lodge's growth was very slow, only loo new nu-mhers being atlded 
to September, 1893. In the years 1892 and '93 the interest had declinetl to such 
an extent that the giving up of the charter was serionsl\- considered, as not 
enough members were paying dues to sustain the lodge, and it \\a> due to the 
efforts of Harry J. .Myers that interest was revived and new life infuse<l. I'roni 
this time a steady growth was maintained. Under the administration oi jlro, G. 
E. Decker, who was Exalted Ruler for two years ending .April isi. i8(/j. the 
permanent prosperity of No. 58 was fully assured many new members bcin.g 
added. To Bro. Barry S. Murphy, who was Exalted i\viler for year ending 
April 1st, 1900, ably assisted by Bro. Maurice D. Lakin, the Secretary for 
the same term, the credit for our largest increase is due, as on .X'ovember 30th, 
1899 ( Day), a class of 107 was initiated. Since liien the growth 
has been slow and conservative. With a membership now of 350. l)a\ton Lodge 
Xo. 58 feels that it should have more commodious quarters than tlie\ are occu- 
pying at present and a building committee is now looking I'or suital)le quarters 
which we hope to find soon. 

The meets every Thursday night at 127 South Main St.. Lowe Build- 
ing. Club rooms open e\ery da\ to all members of the Order.

History of Findlay Lodge No. 75. 

THE institution of Findlay Lodge on Tlnirsday, March 15, 1888. was one of 
the most successful secret order events that ever took place in iMiidlay. 
or indeed in that part of the state. Hon. George .X. Clugston. of Mans- 
field Lodge No. 56, Dist. Dcp. G. E. R., officiated, assisted hy prominent Elks 
from Toledo, Lima and Mansfield, Ohio; Detroit, Mich., and San Francisco, Cal. 

The following brothers, some of whom had become members of Toledo and 
others of Lima Lodge, were the petitioners for the dispensation to organize a 
lodge at Findlay. They were: J. C. Tritch, W. C. Neihling, Ed. M. Campfield, 
George L. Cusac, S. B. Lippman, A. C. Heck, A. H. Crozier. V. H. Coons. George 
Brake, J. H. Boger, E. B. Davis, David Hosier, E. E. Mallettc, H. \'. Davis, R. 
B. Motherwell and J. Rosenthall, and from them were selected the charter officers. 

The charter mem'bers of the Lodge were: W. R. McKce, ]. R. Kagy, V.. T. 
Dunn, P. E. Hay, W. T. Piatt, H. P. Grouse, Wm. H. Saltz. J. H. Smith. A. Joy. 
D. Joy, Ben Haines, J. A. Kimmell, F. W. Firmin, C. D. Hayward, C. E. Swartz- 
haugh. H. E. Hickox, L. E. Huston, D. A. Walker, John A. Scott, Daniel Stoug!:, 
Chas. Gassman, Theo. Totten, P. C. Tritch, L. W. Eofif, Geo. Nemeyer, M. Xe- 
ineyer, A. Zugschwert, E. C. McElhaney, F. H. Glessner, Geo. R. Thompscjn. 
H. F. Burket, U. K. Stringfellow, John M. Loomis, John IVL Barr, J. W. Carner, 
Henry C. Smith, Wm. F. Hosier, E. E. Siddall, J. N. Doty, E. D. Higgs. Clinton 
Black, J. H. Camp, C. C. Chace, Fred P. Whiteley, O. A. Ballard, J. C. Bushon, 
Ezra Kendall. 

The charter officers who were installed on the night of the institution of the 
lodge were: J. C. Tritch, E.xalted Ruler; W. C. Keibling, Esteemed Leading 
Knight ; Ed. M. Campfield. Esteemed Loyal Knight ; CKJorge L. Cusac, Esteemed 
Lecturing Knight; S. B. Lippman, Secretary; A. C. Heck, Treasurer; .A. B. Croz- 
ier, Tyler; C. C. Chace, Esquire; L. W. Eofif, Inner Guard; H. E. Hicko.x, Chap- 
lain ; V. H. Coons, Geo. Brake, J. H. Boger, Trustees. 

A short time after the election of Dr. J. C. Tritch as Exalted Ruler he re- 
signed his position, owing to the fact that his professional duties prevented his 
attending the meetings of the lodge regularly. H. E. Hickox was elected to fill 
out the unexpired term. 

At the very next meeting of the lodge held after his election as Secretary, 
S. B. Lippman resigned and J. C. Bushon was elected in his stead. 

The lodge was instituted at the G. .-\. R. Hall, in the third story of the Pat- 
terson Block, situated at tiie northwest corner of South .Main and West Sandusky 
streets, at which place it continued to meet until about Xovemlx?r I, 1 888, when 
it took possession of the Frey Hall, at the northeast corner of South Main and 
East Sandusky streets. 


FlMII.AV l\'(). 75. 

Tlic banquet tliat l\illci\\i.'cl the iustittitioii of tlic lodge and installation of 
ofiFicers was one of the l)est ever given in the city. 

The new rtxjnis in the Frey i'linrk were destroyed l>y fire Xovember 24, 1888. 
The lodge had iicld but tiiree meetings in these rooms; the furnishing of the lodge 
rcwm, bane|uet hall and rece])tion room had just been completed at a cost of $2,000; 
only a few chairs were saved out of all the l>eautiful furniture. The loss included 
a valued painting given the lodge i>y J. W. Carner, the comedian, and other re- 
membrances that had been given by friends of the order. Fortunately there 
was insurance on the furniture to the amount of $1,300. 

In February, 1889, the lodge was enabled to resume its sessions in the Frey 
Block. This continued to be the meeting place of the lodge until the summer of 
1895, when it took a five-year lease of the fourth floor of the Karst Block, situate 
at the northwest corner of South Main and West Main Cross streets. 

In 1899 the lodge had a [ihenominal growth, the increase in membership be- 
ing one hundred and fifteen. 

June 12-17, '899, the lodge gave a Street Fair and Carnival. East Main 
Cross street was used for the fair and the Turley lot for the show part. This 
was a great event, not only for the Elk Lodge, but for the city of Findlay as well ; 
everbody was anxious to make a success of the affair. 

In the summer of 1900 the lodge removed to its present location, the Jones 
Block, situate at the southwest corner of South Main and West Crawford streets. 
Here the lodge has fitted up elegant and commodious lodge and club rooms, at 
an expense of about $9,000, views of which are shown in full page preceding 
this history of the lodge. There is a ladies' parlor and reading room ; a gentle- 
man's reading room; a billiard and pool room; a card room; a Turkish room; 
toilet rooms and lodge room. These quarters are surpassed by few if any lodge 
in the state. In April, 1902, the rooms were damaged by fire, but there was

History of Delaware Lodge No. 76. 

DELAWARE Lodge No. 76, B. P. O. Elks, first saw the liglit of day on the 
22d day of February (WashiiisTton's birthday), 1888, with a charter mem- 
bership of thirty-six live Bucks, under tiic following disi^cnsation granted 
by Exalted Ruler Hamilton E. Leach : 

To Whom it May Concern : 

Know Ye, that L Hamilton E. Leach, Exalted Grand Ruler of the Grand 
Lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, by virtue of the power 
conferred upon me by the Constitution and General Laws of the Order, and 
upon application of Brothers Jno. C. Burns, E. S. Hiestand and S. J. Twitchell, 
of Lodge No. 56, have upon this, the 9th day of February, granted a Dispensa- 
tion for a Lodge, to be known as Delaware Lodge No. 76, under Dispensation, 
and to hold its communications in the city of Delaware, Ohio. 

Attest: Hamilton E. Lkach, 

Exalted Grand Ruler. 

A. C. MoRELAND, Geo. A. Clugston, 

Grand Secretary. D. D. E. G. R. for Ohio. 

Delaware Lodge is known as "Washington's Birthday Lodge," being the only 
one that was ever instituted on that memorable day. 

The institution of the Lodge and installation of the officers was conducted 
by George A. Clugston, D. D. E. G. R. of Mansfield Lodge, assisted by members 
from Mansfield, Columbus, Marion and other Lodges, and took place in the 
lodge rooms of the Knights of Pythias Hall, located in the Williams Block. 

The charter officers were: Frank M. Marriott, Exalted Ruler; Robert G. 
Lybrand. Esteemed Leading Knight: W. C. Taynes, Esteemed Loyal Knight: 
L. L Mitchell. Esteemed Lecturing Knisrht: Geo. B. Donavin, Secretary: Ed. 
T. Butler, Treasurer; J. W. Donavin, Chaplain; T- H. Smith, Esquire; R. C. 
Wintermute, Inner Guard ; V. D. Stayman, H. J. McCullough and H. L. Baker, 

The charter members of the Lodge were: L. K. Donavin, Charles F. 
Gruner. W. Berne Jones, E. P. Sampsell, H. L. Hyatt, S. K. Donavin, T. C. 
Tones Jr.. R. C. Thomson. W. L. Bennington, R. A. Tavnes. Ed. C. Adair, Chas. 
E. Dole. W. E. O'Kane, L R. Elston, H. N. P. Dole, J. P. Thompson, M. P. 
Hunt, H. D. Myers, R. E. Johnson. Wm. M. Heseltine, L. L. Welch, R. S. 
Evans, E. G. Lybrand, H. E. Buck, F. M. Marriott, R. G. Lvbrand, W. C. 
Tavnes, L. T. Mitchell, Geo. B. Donavin, Ed. T. Butler, J. W. Donavin, J. H. 
Smith, R. C. Wintermute, V. D. Stayman, H. J. McCullough. H. L. Baker. 

Delaware Lodge for a few years prospered and was the most prominent 
fraternal order in the city, the numerous banquets, picnics, narties. socials, etc., 
being still remembered b'v the older members with much pleasure. On Febru- 
arv 22, 1889, one year after its institution, Delaware I^odge celebrated its first 
anniversary with a banquet and promenade at the Hotel Donavin. That the affair 
was the grandest social event that ever occurred in Delaware the following copied 
from the Dclazvarc Herald. February 22. 1889. will testify: 

"We have from time to time been called upon to make mention of banquets 
■given in our citv. several of which heretofore have been given bv the Delaware 
Lodge of Elks, but we believe that the one given by this lodge Friday evening in 
commemoration of the first anniversary of the lodge surpassed any former effort. 


Di:i.A\\AKi; Nu. 76. 

Tlie spread was elegant. Two tables were arranged tlie full length of the dining 
room of the Hotel Donavin, on which were spread in a delightful and tempting 
manner viands that would please the most fastidious epicurean. The ]>romenade 
and reception were held in the hotel parlors from 8:30 until 10 o'clock, and the 
occasion was made a memorable one by a most pleasant surprise given the mem- 
bers by their lady friends. The ladies — composed of the wives and fair maidens 
of the members — had, with surprising secretiveness, purchased a handsome 
Turkish divan and two elegant pictures, one representing the elk at bay, with a 
hound at his side, entitled "At Ray," and the other showing an elk prostrate, while 
over him stands the "Conqueror of the Glen," both being hadsomely mounted in 
chestnut frames, with cards attached bearing the inscription : 

" Compliments of the lady friends of Delaware Lodge, No. 76, B. P. O. E., 
first anniversary, February 22, 1889. " 

"The presentation address from the ladies was an excellent production from 
the pen of Mrs. Frank Campbell, and was read by District Deputy George A. 
Clugston. It spoke feelingly of the good will that the ladies entertained for the 
Order, breathing forth beautiful and eloquent sentiments, and expressed 
the hope that the ties of friendship would be lasting and forever binding. Too 
much praise cannot be bestowed on Mrs. Campbell and her lady associates for 
the untiring energy and unselfish devotion displayed for the occasion. To Mrs. 
H. H. P. Dole and Mrs. G. B. Donavin is due the credit for being the instigators 
in the movement to make these presents. 

"Hon. F. M. Marriott, the Exalted Ruler of the Lodge, made an appropriate 
reply, thanking the ladies for their kind remembrance of the Order, and the 
interest displayed by them in the lodge. The evening was passed in social enjoy- 
ment, and with the handsome costumes worn made a social event that will long be 
remembered by those who were present. 

"At 10 o'clock the march was made to the banquet table, where Low's orches- 
tra furnished the music during the evening. 

"Elx-Mayor H. L. Baker was programed as Master of Ceremonies, but owing 
to his absence the office fell to Mr. G. B. Donavin, who ably fulfilled the duties of 
the occasion. 

"Mr. J. W. Donavin on entering the hall, as Chaplain, pronounced the invoca- 
tion. The toast, 'Our First Anniversary,' was given to Hon. F. M. Marriott, 
Exalted Ruler, who happily responded to the subject matter. 

"Dr. S. D. Miranda, of Columbus, was given the subject, 'Infants.' He 
had a good store of knowledge for the text, and kept his audience in good humor. 

"The Elk Octette, consisting of Messrs. Frank Campbell, L. K. Donavin, 
W. Wohlater, G. H. Carter, Robert Evans and Dick Sampsell, delighted the 
assemblage with vocal selections. This was followed by that popular, gifted 
speaker, R. L. McCabe, who dealt with the subject, 'Our Guests,' which was 
an eulogy on the ladies, and was happily received by those jiresent. 

■"Professor F. L. Rawson then followed with a beautiful cornet solo, which 
elicited applause. 

"Among those present was that prince of good fellows. Hon. G. A. Clugston, 
D. D. E. G. R., of Mansfield, and to him was delegated the task of responding 
to the toast, 'The Faults of Our Brothers We Write Upon the Sands.' Those 
who know the gentleman need no commendation of the liappy manner in which 
he responded to the toast, which was well received by his auditors. 

"Dr. M. P. Hunt had been assigned the duty of responding to 'The Ladies,' 
but being absent Dr. Wintermute was called upon to respond, and he did so in 
a very happy manner. 


Delaware No. 76. 

"All present then formed a circle and sang 'Auld Lang Syne,' thus closing 
the first anniversary banquet. 


"An elegant herd of Elks. 

"Seventy-si.x is a healthy child, just one year old. 

"Who says the ladies of 76 can't keep a secret? 

"The grandest social event ever occurring in Delaware. 

"The presentation of the fine steel engravings and Turkish divan to tlit 
Lodge by the ladies of Delaware was the event of the evening." 

On the Wednesday following the first anniversary, many of the members 
of Delaware Lodge assisted in the institution of Zanesville Lodge, February 27, 

Delaware Lodge prospered for a period of a few years, as the above indi- 
cates, and then, like many of her sister lodges, dissention arose amongst the 
members which all but closed the career of one of the most prominent lodges 
of the city. 

From a membership of seventy-five it drifted backwards until its secretary 
could only muster seventeen names on its rolls. While the charter was never 
given up, it was at times only held by a mere thread, which threatened to break at 
any moment ; but the faithful handful of members left still lingered with the 
hope of seeing daylight shine once more out of the depths of darkness that so 
long menaced No. 76. Their ambition was realized when in the year 1898 Dela- 
ware Lodge took on a new lease of life and aroused from the lethargy that had 
held her so long. 

Beginning with the year 1898, the membership increased (with the untiring 
work of the officers and the few members left), slowly but surely, until the fall 
of 1902, when the lodge undertook and successfully carried through an Elk's 
Circus and Congress of Novelties, and to it Delaware Lodge attributes the infus- 
ion of new life and vigor into the members, each one now trying to outdo the 
other in securing new members. 

From a membership of seventeen of a few years back, Delaware Lodge now 
has a membership of one hundred and seventy-five true blue Elks, and some of 
the most influential citizens and officials of Delaware are on its rolls. 

Delaware Lodge, although one of the oldest Lodges in the State, has never 
been honored by the Grand Lodge by any of its appointments or by election. 
Whether this has been the fault of the Grand Lodge or the lack of interest dis- 
played by the members we cannot say, but in the near future Delaware will send 
a delegate who will be expected to comer the convention, and will advise the 
Grand Lodge that Delaware (the birthplace of ex-President R. B. Hayes), is 
still on the map, and should have recognition. 

The Lodge last year leased the upper floors of the Lamb Block, corner of 
Winter and Sandusky streets, and from the cramped condition of the old quar- 
ters we have now, after an expenditure of nearly two thousand dollars in remod- 
eling, commodious and very pleasant lodge rooms. 

The Lodge meets every Wednesday evening at 7 130 p. ni.. and cordially 
invites all visiting brothers who are fortunate enough to be in our city on a 
Wednesday evening to meet with her, and under her fraternal care she will try to 
make you remember Delaware Lodge, No. 76, B. P. O. E.

History of Circleville Lodge No. 77. 

CIRCLEVILLE Lodge was instituted February i6, 1888. District Deputy 
George A. Clugston, of Mansfield, Lodge, officiating. The following 
charter members of the Lodge contain some of the most prominent 
and best esteemed citizens of Circleville. They were Charles H. Kellstadt, 
M. A. Lanum, Charles Dresbach, A. C. LeBaron, Dr. T. B. Wright, C. P. 
Rowe, J. G. Wilder, H. S. Lewis, Alfred Dre^ach, G. A. Schleyer, C. E. 
.Moeller, Thomas Walke, W. H. Albaugh, W. G. Jacobs, J. C. Haswell, G. 
H. Pontius, J. M. Hitt, Harry M. Weldon, Lawrence Weldon, R. C. Weldon, 
W. B. Drum, J. W. Harsha, F. L. Fickardt, S. Turney Ruggles, Edward 
VVittich, Harry Montelius. The charter officers were: Lawrence Weldon, Ex- 
alted Ruler ; M. A. Lanum, Esteemed Leading Knight ; G. A. Schleyer, Esteemed 
Loyal Knight ; Charles Dresbach, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; Alf C. LeBaran, 
Secretary; S. Turney Ruggles, Treasurer; W. H. Albaugh, Jr., Tyler; Fred L. 
Fickardt, Esquire; R. C. Weldon, Inner Guard; George H. Pontius, Chaplain; 
Edward Wittich, Organist 

The lodge for several years after its organization had no home of its own, 
but with years came new members and the lodge secured a suite of rooms in the 
City building. Two of the large rooms in the suite were set apart for club 
rooms and by untiring and persevering efforts of the supporters of this feature th^ 
club rooms were suitably furnished. 

The establishing of lodge rooms with club rooms annexed marked an epoch 
in fraternal circles in this city, as No. yy was the pioneer in tliis field. Interest 
in the lodge and its work was revived and applications for membership were re- 
ceived. Those who were attracted solely by the pleasure to be obtained by the club 
rooms are now the enthusiastic champions of the lodge and its work. 

The club rooms at once passed from the experimental stage to the realm of 
permanency. Every night a goodly number of the members congregate at the 
rooms, thus promoting one of the cardinal principles of the order, brotherly love. 

While the lodge has looked to the enjoyment and sociability among its mem- 
bers, it has not been unmindful of the broad principles upon which tlie order was 
founded, but without ostentation has performed many charitable deeds and en- 
deared itself in the hearts of the people. 

On the roll of today are to be found the names of the leading business and 
professional men of this city. 

The lodge now occupies the wiiole of the second floor of the First National 
Bank building at the intersection of Court and Main streets, the principal corner 
in the city. The club rooms are open every night and visiting brothers are al- 
ways welcome.

History of Hamilton Lodge No. 93. 

HAMILTON LODGE No. 93, Benevolent, Protective Order of Elks, was 
instituted June 5, 1,SS8, in Odd l-'ellows Hall, corner Second and 
Court streets, in this city by District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler Geo. 
G. Clugston, of Mansfield, Ohio, assisted by Cincinnati Lodg^e No. 5. P. G. 
Berry, Chas. Howald, F. J. Hilker, E. E. Hull, John L. Gottschalk, F. C. Mayer 
and C. V. Alberts were the incorporators. 

The charter members were as follows : George H. Phillips, E. E. Hull, 
J. L Maas, P. B. Walker, J. L. Gottschalk, J. N. Maas, F. J. Hilker, George H. 
Helvey, J. J. McMaken, Gus Stcflfee, P. G. Berry, Charles Howald, G. A. Miller, 

F. C. Mayer, Gabe H. Mayer, Jacob Pabst, Jr., George T. Reiss, Harry Stead, J. K. 
Aydelotte, L. M. Larsh, E. G. Rathbone, H. E. Twitchell, C. V. Alberts, Joseph 
S. Fell, J. Tyler Ryan, R. B. Millikin, J. B. Watkins, A. J. Welliver, Wm. Ritchie. 

To meet the demand the lodge came into existence, and was founded upon 
a rock, as is evidenced by its matchless charter list. Its growth has been steady 
and uninterrupted and its power quadrupled, and, without ostentation, many 
times have poverty, grief and suffering been replaced by plenty, cheerful- 
ness and ease in the dark home of the widow and orphan, where death had re- 
cently paid his dread but inevitable visit. 

At the time of institution, officers were elected as follows: Exalted Ruler, 
George H. Phillips; Esteemed Leading Knight, I. I. Maas; Esteemed Loyal 
Knight, E. E. Hull; Esteemed Lecturing Knight, P. B. Walker; Esquire, P. 

G. Berry; Secretary, Fred J. Hilker; Treasurer, Jos. N. Maas; Tyler, Jacob 
Pabst, Jr.; Inner Guard, J. B. Watkins; Organist, John Gottschalk; Trustees, 
G€0. T. Reiss, L. M. Larsh, J. Tyler Ryan. 

The first quarters occupied by this lodge were on the third floor of the old 
Hamilton House Building, which was specially prepared for it and was con- 
sidered not only ample but quite elegant for the time. This occupancy con- 
tinued until January, 1895, when increased membership made a more commo- 
dious home necessary, and one was fitted up by Brother Charles Howald on the 
third floor of his fine new hotel building on High street between Front and 
Second streets, where the lodge still holds forth ; but the march of progress has 
taken deep hold on this progressive lodge and an Elk's Temple is spoken of as 
a monument to the zeal, energy and success of the people, for whom it is said 
"Tlie best is none too good." 

The lodge is composed of men of all callings, business and professions. It 
is made up of the active, energetic and ambitious citizens of Hamilton. The mem- 
bers are devoted to the brotherhood of Elks. The brothers reflect in their lives the 
grand principles of the order, as taught in the ritual. They dispense charity pro- 
fusely, without ostentation, show or parade. They are just in their dealings with 


Hamilton No. 93. 

each otlier and with all maiikiiul. They possess brotherly love, as constant as that 
of Damon and Pythias, and last but not least, their fidelity is unceasing. 

April, 1899, No. 93 gave a minstrel show that was voted an un(iualified suc- 
cess, was liberally patronized, and will be long remembered with pleasure. In 
January, 1898, a class of forty-five members joined its ranks, and in May, 1899, an- 
other class of forty swelled its roster. 

Three hundred and seventy- lour members have been taken in during its ex- 
istence. Two hundred and fifty-two of these are still members; one hiindred and 
three have either been suspended, joined other lodges by cards, or taken time dimits. 
Nineteen have trod the shores of eternity. Of the latter, we have not words fitly 
to speak. They were just, they were noble. Tears gather when to the roll call 
there is no answer. They answer not, but peace is theirs. They have solved 
the problem of the future, and we who remain, are rivited to the conviction that 
the God of Gods recognizes and rewards the unselfish generosity and unbounded 
kindness of heart that were constantly exemplified in their daily walks of Hfe. 
The Elk's Eternal Pasture is their home, and the good fight is won. They have 
passed to rest. 

The Carnival and Exposition, held in 1900, transcended in magnitude and 
importance anything previously undertaken by this lodge and proved a great 
success. By the degree of success attained, the public was able to measure the 
fitness, capability, and merits of the local organization. Those who came among 
us for' the first time (with us there are no strangers) were welcomed by a mul- 
titude of hearts, that beat in unison of good will, not alone, because this lodge 
was their hostess, but a.lso because the city of Hamihon bade them a thousand 
times welcome, and opened her portals to our brothers, our friends, our neigh- 
bors, and all others who came as our guests to visit our city and participate in our 
reunion and festivities.

History of Tiffin Lodge No. 94. 

To Brother F. P. Cooper, the energetic and ever genial Traveling Passenger 
Agent of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, is due the credit or honor for 
the organization of Tiffin Lodge, No. 94, whicii was instituted July 12, 1888, 
by D. D. G. E. R. Geo. A. Clugston, of Mansfield Lodge, No. 56, assisted by 
Brothers of the same Lodge and of Findlay Lodge, No. 75, Delaware Lodge, 
No. 76, and Upper Sandusky Lodge, No. 83. About eighty members of the 
Order were present for the occasion, and the delegations from Findlay and 
Uf>per Sandusky Lodges were accompanied by bands of music, which very much 
enlivened the occasion. 

The charter mentbers, of which there were twenty, consisted of the follow- 
ing: F. P. Cooper, H. L. Pittinger, Jas. A. Norton, ^L M. Brooks, John B. 
Runyan, B. F. Kaup, E. L- Zimmerman, Geo. A. Corthell, F. L. Emich, Geo. W. 
Fiege, Frank Bloom, Perry M. Adams, J. F. E. Fanning, L J. C. Shoemaker, 
Jos. P. Myers, J. F. Wagner, Calvin E. Pratt, C. Hatcher, E. B. Hubbard and 
H. B. Gibbon. Of these seven are still members of the Lodge, three have departed 
to the Grand Lodge above, and of the balance, some were demitted, and the mem- 
bership of others in some manner was severed. 

After the signers of the charter had been duly initiated, the election of 
officers was proceeded with, and resulted in the following beiiig chosen : L J. C. 
Shoemaker, Exalted Ruler; C. Hatcher, Esteemed Leading Knight; Jolin B. 
Runyan, Esteemed Loyal Knight ; James A. Norton, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; 
F. L. Emich, Secretary ; Jos. P. Myers, Treasurer ; J. F. Wagner, Tyler ; H. B. 
Gibbon, Esquire; George W. Fiege, Inner Guard; R. E. Dowie, Chaplain; Jos. 
P. Myers, Organist ; E. B. Hubbard, B. F. Kaup and Perry M. Adams, Trustees. 

The officers were then installed in their respective stations, after which all 
adjourned to the Shavvan House, at that time und'er the proprietorship of our 
departed Brother Calvin E. Pratt, where the ceremonies were ended in a social 
session, banquet and general good time. 

From a membership of twenty, the Lodge has grown numerically until at the 
present time the roster contains one hundred and thirty-eight names, among 
which are included many of the most prominent business and professional men 
of the city. The Lodge is in a very prosperous condition, new members being 
constantly enrolled, though quality, rather than numljers, is at all times the 
predominating consideration. 

Following the action of the most progressive lodges of the Order, a club 
room was opened several years since and furnished and equipped in a manner 
to afford the utmost possible comfort and pleasure to the members of the Lodge 
and of the Order in general partaking of its privileges. In 1898, the Lodge 
moved into the commodious quarters it now occupies, having, in addition to its 


Tiffin No. 94. 

lodge and club rooms, a banquet and dance hall, and social sessions, both stag 
and for the ladies, are held at frequent intervaJs. Brothers of other Lodges visit- 
ing the city will always find the latch string hanging out and will be made wel- 
come to the Club Room and to the meetings and Social Sessions. 

The lodge was honored by the Grand Lodge in 1894 by the appointment of 
Brother John W. Leahy as District Deputy G. E. R. for the district of Northern 
Ohio and as member of the Committee on Work and Ritual.

Captain Samuel A. Dunbar, the Lodge's first Exalted Ruler, was assisted 
by able sulKirdinate oflficers. and the Lodge was started on a career that has been 
unprecedently successful and harmonious, numbering in its membership, at all 
times, the very best material of the little French city. Membership in Gallipolis 
Lodge has always been a certificate of highest social standing and honorable 
business methods, and this i)eerless position is still maintained. 

The Lodge meets in regular session every Monday evening at 7 o'clock.

read from District Deputy (icorge A, Clugston of Mansfield. ( )liio, in regar<l to 
the institution of a lodge in Zanesville, and at the meeting of F'ebruary 8th the

.After the ceremonies incident to the institution the inenibers and visitin.g 
I'.rothers rejiaired to the Kirk House where a delightful l)anc|uel was served. 
I'.rother William S. Hell made the address of welcome, whicli was responded to 
bv District Dc])nt\ Clu.gston. 'Hie lodge continued its nteetings in Odd Fellows 
hall for about three vears. when they moved to their present (|iiarters in P.lack's 
theatre, at the time the niost prominent in the cit\ In ii);)3 a new lease was made 
for a term of ten vears and the rooms remodeled :iiid furnished :it an ex])ense of 
$2.500 — a large part of which was liorne b\ the 1o(Il;o in cimsiiU'ralion of the long

cxtctxicil term ul lease. Tliis money was raised In voluiuaiy sub>cii|)liiMi from 
tlic members. Tlie lodge has two lloors, tiic second ami third of the building. 
S[)lcndidl\ arranged for lodge and club |nn-poses. (,)n the lirst Ihxir. library, par- 
lors, ladies reception room and billiard and card rooms, and on tlie second iloor, 
lodge room and banquet hall, the latter being also tlie ball room. 

Zanesville's first outing was in attendance, in a bod\. at the Grand Lodge 
session at Cleveland in 1890. A special train with llrother l^dmund Pedler at tiie 
throttle carried the members on this never-to-!>e-forgotten run. ( )n \\'ednesda\-, 
Se[>tember 7, 1892, the lodge gave a barbacue on the farm of P>rother William H. 
IJolin. near the city, at which a large mmiber of visiting ]\\]<s. and invited guests, 
including Al. G. Fields' Minstrel troup. were present. 

Another event worthy of record was the street fair held during the week of 
June 14. 1898. it being one of the first held in this part of the country. Excur- 
sions were run from the surrounding cities and towns and hundreds of Mlks 
from the neighboring lodges attended the fair and heljied to make it a great suc- 
cess. In the appointment of District Deputies this lodge has been signally hon- 
ored, three of its most distinguished members — Frank M. Ford. Frank A. Dur- 
ban and Robert L. Queisser — having performed the duties of that responsible 
office with credit to the order and themselves. The officers and members of 
Zancsville instituted the lodges of Newark, Cambridge, Coshocton, Marietta, Xew 
Lexington and Logan, Ohio. 

Zancsville has had several hnndred members, many of whom reside in [places 
where she instituted lodges, who, after their institution, transferred tlieir mem- 
bership to their home lodges. One of the most pleasant featm-es in connection 
with the lodge is ladies' day, on wjiich occasion the wives, sisters and daughters 
of the members have their social .gatherings and enjoyments. The lodge meets in 
regular session every Wednesday evening, to which all visiting brothers are cor- 
diall}' invited.

History of Washington C. H. Lodge No. 129. 

WASHINGTON C. H. Lodge Xo. i2y, B. 1'. O. K. was organized No- 
vember 15, 1889, with the following charter niemL>ers : J. C. Anderson, 
J. N. Boyer, F. G. Can)enter, Ji. F. Davis, H. i\I. Daugherty, M. S. 
Daugherty, C. A. F'oster, D. 11. Hare, Joseph Hidy, Cal. Holmes, E. J. Light, 
John P. Maynard, Thomas D. McElwain, H. D. I'ursell, Charles Pursell, J. H. 
Robinson, VV. F. W'illette. 

The names of Charter Ofificers were: VV. F. Willett, Exalted Ruler; T. D. 
.McElwain, Esteemed Leading Knight; E. J. Light, Esteemed Loyal Knight; D. 
H. Hare, Esteemed Lecturing Knight; Calvin Holmes, Secretary; M. S. Daugh- 
erty, Treasurer; J. H. Robinson, Tyler; B. F\ Davis, Esquire; J. P. Maynard, 
Inner Guard; C. A. Foster, Chaplain; F. G. Carpenter, H. D. Pursell, H. AI. 
Daugherty, Trustees. 

The early years of its existence were tilled with efforts for existence rather 
than expansion, but with a heroism seldom seen and rarely surpassed, the charter 
members struggled against odds until they see the results of the efforts today. 
The standard required for admission has always been a high one and the years 
have not tended to lower it. 

The Lodge has e.xperienced the usual financial troubles, lack of quarters, 
disapproval of community and similar obstacles, but has conquered them all. 

Today in pleasant — almost luxurious — quarters, with a well stocked treas- 
ur)' and with the respect and confidence of the entire community the Lodge 
looks forward to a promising future. 

The standard of excellence shown in its charter members has been retained 
and even increased until now it numbers among its members all the prominent 
business men of our city. Bankers, attorneys, druggists, jewelers, are its most 
valued members, while every worker merits the "grand old name of gentleman." 

With the social element stimulated by our Exalted Ruler and the finances 
carefully guarded by our Secretary and Treasurer, tlie prospects for the Lodge 
are bright and its position for the future assured. 

The Lodge meets the first and third Friday nights of eacli month.

History of Mt. Vernon Lodge No. 140. 

THE institution of Mt. Vernon Lodge, No. 140, B. P. O. Elks, marks an 
epoch in the history of the city of Mt. Vernon. Like most towns, prior 
to this event, social and even fraternal associations were divided by cer- 
tain social, political or religious prejudices. 

So pronounced was this tentlency that within a long period previous to 
the institution of Mt. Vernon Lodge, it was frequently referred to by citizens as 
a source of regret that some social organization, or fraternal organization, that 
woukl remove all prejudices and enable our people to meet together upon social 
grounds, had never been organized. A number of ideas were suggested, but 
were always met with the objection that they would interfere with some other 
organization and not accomplish the desired result. 

Mt. Vernon Lodge, No. 140, B. P. O. Elks, was organized and instituted 
November 14, 1889. The following were the charter members: L. G. Hunt, 
J. D. Smoots, W. E. Ten Broeck, W. T. Critchfield, George B. Bum, John E. 
Russell, W. B. Mathers, P. D. Worley, C. H. Grant, P. G. Joyce, H. W. Errett, 
T. E. Tangher, Ed. Boynton, R. M. Torrey, W. D. Bell, Will Bechtol, Frank 
Parrott, T. F. Hayes and Joseph Durringer. 

The Charter Officers were: L. G. Hunt, Exalter Ruler; J. D. Smoots, 
Esteemed Leading Knight ; P. D. Worley, Esteemed Loyal Knight ; W. B. 
Mathers, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; C. H. Grant, Secretary ; T. F. Hayes. 
Treasurer; W. D. Bell, Tyler; W. T. Critchfield, Esquire; Ed. Boynton, In- 
ner Guard ; Joseph Durringer, Ciiaplain ; T. E. Tangher, R. M. Torrey, W. H. 
Errett, Trustees. 

Since its institution the Lodge has prospered and grown until today it has 
140 members on its roll in good standing. The Lodge is in a thoroughly good 
financial condition, is out of debt, and has a considerable sunx of money laid 
aside for a new Lodge building. Already a committee to secure a site for a 
Lodge temple has been appointed and it will not be many years before the Lodge 
will be in a home of its own. 

Mt. Vernon Lodge meets the first and third Tuesdav of each month.

History of Defiance Lodge No. 147. 

DEFIAX'CE Lodge, Xo. 147, was first organized December 12, 1889, with 
twenty-two charter nienibers and located on the second tloor of a business 
building, named after the order, Elk Bltx-k, by the owner and builder. 
The rooms were designed for lodge purposes, and handsomely furnished, and 
would do credit to a much larger chy than Defiance. The Lodge grew in mem- 
bership to 165, composed of some of tlie best citizens in Defiance and towns in 
its jurisdiction. 

In fanuarv. uj02. the Lodge lost its charter, caused by some irregularities, 
which the members feel were of the mind and not the heart. 

The Charter .Members of the original Lodge were: F. J. Shead, M. S. 
Halston, Frank Ferguson, T. C. Yingiing, S. ^1. Stevens. C. E. Sutton, J. A. 
Backus, Wni. E. Carter, .\. Rurgland, T. R. Carroll, G. W. Deatrick, Wm.

Wellman. A. \'iers. George W. Bcchel, A. T. Green, R. R. Rogers, A. F. 
Schrack, R. T. Dobson, W. V,. Dobson. 

On Dcx-ember 8, 1902, the Lodge was reorganized and the following broth- 
ers installed as its first officers: \V. L Bohannon, E.xalted Ruler: Charles Beh- 
ringer. Esteemed Leading Knight: H. H. MuUencup, Esteemed Loyal Knight: 
F. A. Schlosser, Esteemed I^'cturing Knight: Peter F. Seibel, Secretary: H. 
T. Jennings, Treasurer: Edward Hentz. Tvler . J. B. Tennyson, Esquire; John 
C. Diehl.' Inner Guard: Peter Weigerding. Chaplain ; J. A. Evans. Organist: 
A. C. Smith. W. C. Burke. X. T. Cunningham. Trustees. 

The newly organized Lodp-c is occupying the rooms formerly held by the 
old lodee: lias more than doubled its membership since its reorganization and 
the outlook for its successful and ranid building up is most encouraging. 

The Lodge meets every Thursday evening.

History of Portsmouth Lodge No. 154. 

THE formation of an Elk Lodge in rortsaioutii was conceived by a nuniber 
of professional and representative business men of the city, and as a result 
a Lodge was instituted here January 21, i8yo, with twenty-four charter 
members, District Deputy G. E. R., L. M. lladdun, officiating, assisted by Chilli- 
cothe Lodge members acting as Grand Officers. 

The Charter Members were: C. L Barker, J. J. Urushart, I'hilo S. Clark, J. 
AL Dawson, John G. Dillon, C. C. Eulton, G. e! Gibbs, II. S. Grimes, H. F. 
Harwood, W. A. Hutchins, Jr., James A. Hager, R. W. Lodwick, Frank Legler, 
lohn AL Lewis, VV. A. AIcFarlin, George AL Osborn, A. L. Sanford, Floyd L. 
Smith, Adam Seel, J. O. Stanton, L. C. Turley, T. A. Taylor, L. W. Terry, J. 
J 1. Variier. 

The Charter Officers, who served from January to Alay, iSyo. were: C. L 
Larker, Exalted Ruler; W. A. AIcFarlin, Esteemed Leading Knight; W. A. 
Hutchins, Jr., Esteemed Lojal Knight; A. L. Sanford, Esteemed Lecturing 
Knight; George AL Osborn, Secretary; L. W. Terry, Treasurer; J. O. Stanton, 
Esquire; Philo S. Clark, Chaplain; G. E. Gibbs, Inner Guard; R. W. Lodwick, 
Tyler; Floyd L. Smith, H. S. Grimes, J. AL Dawson, Trustees. 

Unlike many other Lodges, which were organized during this period of the life 
of the Order, Portsmouth has enjoyed from the beginning a condition of prosperity 
and good fellowship which has never been interrupted during the fourteen years of 
its existence. It was one of the first Lodges in the State to appreciate the value 
and importance of having a home of its own, and before the Lodge was two years 
old a stock company was formed for the purchase of a lot and the erection of a 
building suitable for the purpose of the Lodge. The corner stone was laid in 
September, 1901, and the dedication took place December 15, 1902. The build- 
ing — a view of which is herewith shown — is four stories high, of brick with stone 
trimmings, is steam heated, has elevator and every other modern convenience, mak- 
ing it one of the best office buildings in the city. The first floor is used for busi- 
ness purposes ; the second and third for offices and the fourth is the home of the 
Lodge. These quarters were elaborately furnished at an expense of several 
thousand dollars, and added to the cost of the building, represents an outlav of 
nearly $40,000. Social sessions are held weekly during the fall and winter, 
and are the society events of the city. The membership of over one hundred is 
largely drawn from the most representative and distinguished class of the citizens 
of Portsmouth. Portsmouth has been honored but once by Grand Lodge appoint- 
ment. Hon. James W. Newman, one of its best beloved members, now deceased. 
serving as District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler for Southern Ohio. 

The Lodge has but one life member. Col. Floyd L. Smith, the present Exalted 
Ruler, who was imanimously elected an honorary life member while the efficient 
Secretary of the Lodge, for faithful and signal services rendered bv him. 

The Lodge meets the second and fourth Wednesday evenings of each month.

History of Bucyrus Lodge No. 156. 

THERE liavc been two organizations of this name and number. The first 
was instituted February 19, 1890, the moving sjjirits in its organization 
being J. VV. Cristee, C. A. Linn and A. II. Gardner, liucyrus was at that 
time in the throes of the "Ccrneau war" and many of its charter Hst were promi- 
nent Masons who felt "A plague on both your houses" and hoped to find in a new 
order the fraternity which at that time was denied tiiem in the Masonic. The 
work of institution was performed by D. D. G. E. R., Geo. A. Clugston, of Mans- 
field, assisted by Brothers from Mansfield and Upper Sandusky, the degrees 
being conferred on a class of thirty-one, as follows: 

J. VV. Cristee, C. A. Linn, A. H. Gardner, S. R. Harris, E. B. Finlev. A. T- 
Richards, Rev. G. M. Grau, VV. H. Miller, Jacob Babst, H. M. Deal, H. '[. Dea'l, 
T. H. Robinson, VV. A. Blicke, J. C. F. Hull," J. A. Stable, A. T. High, C. F. High, 
I. Bland, T. A. Chesnev, C. Feiring, E. R. Birk, F. B. Kehrer.^C. J. Scroggs, 
S. W. Bennett, Ed. C. Roehr, C. F. Birk. P. P. Speasmaker. Affiliated, J. C. To- 
bias, F. M. Kerr, Frank Holbrook, VV^. H. Crim, S. D. Johnson. H. B. Flaharty 
was the only member ever initiated in the old Lodge. 

The following officers were installed : S. R. Harris, Exalted Ruler ; ]. W. 
Cristee. Esteemed Leading Knight; A. J- High, Esteemed Loyal Knight; C. J. 
Scroggs, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; ]. A. Stable, Secretary ; J. C. F. Hull, 
Treasurer; E. R. Birk, Tyler; A. H. Gardner, Esquire; V\^. H. Miller, Inner 
Guard, and Rev. G. M. Grau. Chaplain. According to the Grand Lodge consti- 
tution then in force, the first six officers received the honorarv degree of Past 
Exalted Ruler. But few of its members had the least knowledge of the objects 
or aims of the order of Elks and the wide difference between it and Freemasonrv 
prevented their ever taking the quick, vital interest in it necessary to make any 
Lodge a success. S. R. Harris was succeeded as Exalted Ruler by J- VV^. Cristee 
and he by A. H. Gardner, but little interest was taken and finally regular meetings 
were abandoned. 

In the winter of 1893-4, C. F. High and C. J. Scroggs, two members of the 
old Lodge, together with J. E. Hopley and C. F. Roehr, undertook the reorganiza- 
tion of the Lodge under more liberal lines. After a large amount of prel'minary 
caucusing, application was made for a restoration of the charter, and on February 
15, 1894, D. D. G. E. R., C. B. Squire, of Cleveland, assisted by G. Sec'y Allen 
O. Myers, of Cincinnati, and Brothers from Cleveland, Mansfield, L^jiper San- 
'liisky^ and Chicago, reinstituted the Lodge. Twenty-eight members of the old 
Lodge, who had expressed a desire to continue in the order, were recognized 
as constituting a legal Lodge of Elks, and received, and by dispensation, im- 
mediately acted ui>on twenty-three |)ctitions. and elected and installed the fol- 
lowing officers : j. E. Hopley, Exalted Ruler, P. J. Carroll. Esteemed Leading 
Knight. John Blyth. Esteemed Loyal Knight; R. G. Hunt, Esteemed Lecturing 
Knight; C. F. Roehr. Secretary; J. B. Gormly. Jr., Treasurer; C. P. Bryant. 
Tyler: G. A. Linscr. Esquire; D. VV^ Locke. Chaplain and R. V. Kerr, Inner 

Since then the Lodge has enjoyed uninterrupted prosperity. Seven years 
ago, thcv moved to their present beautiful quarters in the Ouinby Block and 
these are now too small for their large and increasing membership. They have 
been served efficientlv bv J. E. IIoplcv. P. T- Carroll, G, A. AfcN^itt. T. A, Francv.

Exalted Rulers, and VV. H. Miller, present incunvbent of the chair. 'l"o no other 
one, probably, is its jjresent prosperous condition so nuich due as to C. F. Koelir, 
who for six years was a model secretary. 

The Lodge meets every Thursday evening in Hlk Hall, Ilauslaib lilocU, north 
side public square.

History ot Lima Lodge No. 162. 

THE history of tlic Lima Elks is divided into epochs: "The Rise," "The 
Eall" and "The Rise." 

On October 25, 1886, District Deputy A. J. Giihgan, of Cincin- 
nati, assisted by other brotliers of No. 5, installed Lima Lodjje No. 54 with a 
list of 26 charter members. Within a short period these members became rather 
careless and in their efforts to secure new menrljers looked not u\Km the fitness 
of the candidate, an<l as is usual, a very undesirable meml)crship was the result. 
On OctoixT II, i88<>. the lodpe voluntarily surrendered its charter to Dr. 
Simon Quinlan, of Chicago Lodf^e, who came to Lima and tcxik possession of 
all the lodge property and the charter, which was placed in the custody of a com- 
mittee of the better element of the lodge who at once began active preparation 
for the organization of a new lodge, and in a very short while a large number of 
tiic very best business and professional men of the city were enrolled. 

On March 19, 1890, L. M. Hadden, of Cincinnati lodge, organized 
Lima Lodge No. 162 with the following charter members : .\mos Rrown, 
W. H. \Voolery, John Kinney. Wm. McComb, Jr.. A. ^L Franklc, 
Gustave Frankle, R. L. Bates. 'C. D. Crites. Walter R. Richie. Theodore 
D. Robb, Robert Pearl, James B. Lamison. Jason G. Lami.son, Lawrence O'Neil, B. 
S. Porter, William Melville, E. E. Linn, William Cunningham, George Monroe. 
George Buchannan, S. S. Herman, J. B. Townscnd. Charles Pangle, John F. Lam- 
berton. William R. MehafTy. Ed;ward Horn. Conrad P.itzer. L. j". Stucber. T. 
M. Paul. Joiin M. Boose, Fred DeGrief, John Miller. Charles Pangle, A. K. 
McDonald," E. W. Hines, Charles A. Schmidt, Otto Ostcndorf. Melville D. Shaw, 
J. Kniin, Frank Roth. 

Brother Walter B. Richie was chosen as the first E.xalted Ruler and Brother 
T. .'V. Robinson as Secretary. With men of such sterling quality our ship start- 
ed on iier long voyage. 

The charter officers were : W. B. Richie, Exalted Ruler : John F. Lam- 
bcrton. Esteemed Leading Knight; W. R. Mchaffy, Esteeemcd Loval Knight; 
L. J. Stucber. Esteemed Lecturing Knight; T. A. Robinson. Secretarv : George 
Monroe, Treasurer; Amos Brown, Tyler; A. AL Franklc, Esquire, Jason G. 
Lamison, Chaplain; W. H. Woolery, Inner Guard; Charles Pangle. Organist; 
J. R. Townscnd, Creorge Buchanan. Ed. Horn. Trustees. 

Since tiiat date Lima lodge has grown despite the fact of our raising the 
price of admission from twenty to thirty dollars, until it now has a member- 
ship of over four lumdred. which includes besides residents of our own citv the 
best class of citizens of Wapakoneta. St. Marys, Celina. \'an Wert. Delphos. 
New Bremen and LTniopolis. From a small lodge room with a single ante room 
it has spread until it now occupies the whole of the third floor of the Hohl 
block on Soutii Main street, divided into a large and handsomclv furnished com- 
munication room, a beautiful reading room. library, billiard and card rooms. 
b,inf|uct hall and dancing floor, besides dressing rooms, kitchen, closets, etc. .At 
the present time alterations arc being made to make it even more pleasant. 

^^'c arc also adding some few club features which we think will be verv 
popular with the brothers. While all this has been done at a verv considerable 
cost there \ct remains a handsome surplus in our treasury. 

The ln<lge gives an annual minstrel show, the character of which has led 
some of our professional brothers to imitate, antl which is lookctl forward to, 


Lima Xh. i^j. 

will) cuiisi(l(jral.)lc eagerness Ijy our citizens as an event not to l)e missed. Onr 
last show, given on the 22nd of I'ehruarv, i<>'.^ to crowded iionses at hoth mat- 
inee and evening' performances, nettctl us a tritle over one thousanil dollars. 

Our able entertainers are taken entirely from our memhersiiip and none 
liave ever as yet failed to receive abundant encores. In fact, in all things we feel 
that Lima Lodge No. 1O2 L'.. P. O. E. has just cause to be proud. We have nev- 
er asked for any recognition from the Grand Lodge farther than a fraternal feel- 
ing, but have had the honor of having a District Deputy — Brother J. W. Mow- 
en — selected from our midst, and that he performed his work well his record 
will show. 

Like a great many of our sister lodges we have bought the gold brick, an 
Elk's Carnival, in which we worked hard and faithfully only to see the Carnival 
Company fold its tents and steal away with the lion's share of the proceeds, 
uhile the only satisfaction we had was a few paltry dollars and the thought — 
there were others. 

In our list of members we point with pride to a numlx;r of names of national 
[jrominence, among wdiom are U. S. Senator Calvin S. Brice, deceased : the 
Honorable W. B. Richie; James B. Townsend ; Melville D. Shaw; J. W. Luty, 
L'. S. Council at Chili, and others. 

In closing it would hardly be fair not to mention the names of the brothers 
wlio earnestly worked and assumed all responsibility in surrendering the charter 
of No. 54 and organizing No. 162. They were John Kinney, A. M. Frankle, 
Gus Frankle, William AlcComb, Jr., William R. MehafFy. James B. Lamison, 
E. E. Linn, W. H. Woolery, Theodore D. Robb, R. L. Bates, Amos Brown, 
Charles Prangle, five of whom were charter members of old 54 and some of 
whom have passed to the great unknown world beyond to give the grand hailing 
sign to the Grand Exalted Ruler of All. Peace be with them.

History of Fremont Lodge No. 169. 

THE Fremont Lodge of Elks was first talked of in the month of April, 1890. 
Its founders were I. M. Dryfoos and E. H. Russell, two of Fremont's 
hustling young business men who, having heard a great deal about the 
F.Iks from various sources, decided they would interest enough of their associates 
and form a lodge in Fremont. In this they were successful as excellent ma- 
terial was not lacking, and it took but a short time to secure a sufficient num- 
ber of good, reliable names to the charter list to procure the necessary charter. 

On the r)th day of June. 1890, the Lodge was duly organized, the work 
being exemplified in K. of 1'. hall. 

Tile Charter members were: li. II. Russell, I. M. Dryfoos, L. II. Thraves. 
P.. S. Garver, A. E. Blenner, 15. Josei)h, Frank Schmidt, S. L Ryan, F. Raymond. 
C. H. Grett, T- W. Wilson, W. P. Haynes, Geo. Kinney, E." R. Tvler, A. j. Beal, 
Frank Heim. J. T. Petty, W. F. Reed, G. M. Tyler, J. \Y. Moore, Fred Thomp- 
son, J. Youngman, F. M. Tunnington, W. H. Mylander, L H. Buchanon, George 
Donc\son, PI. S. Putman. C. Stausmeyxr, J. J- -Anderson, P. M. Cunningham, 
Jos. Zimmerman, E. S. McCune. 

The first ofificers were: George Kinney, Exalted Ruler; E. H. Russell, 
Esteemed Leading Knight; B. S. Garver, Esteemed Loyal Knight; I. M. Dr)'- 
foos, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; E. S. McCuen. Secretary ; Wm. P. Haynes, 
Treasurer: S. J. Rj-an. Tyler; Frank Heim, H. S. Putman, C. H. Grett, Trustees. 

The work of initiation was done by brothers from Toledo, Tifiin and Cin- 
cinnati, following which the newly elected ofificers were installed and a grand 
banquet participated in. .At the next regular meeting F. J. Schmidt was ap- 
pointed Esquire and George Doncyson, Inner Guard. 

During its early life the Lodge met on Friday nights in Druids Hall. This 
meeting place \\as continued until the following April when the new opera 
house building l>eing completed the Lodge secured the entire third floor of 
the block for its permanent quarters. The rooms consist of anterooin, recep- 
tion and lodge rooms, room for paraphernalia and toilet rooms. In putting the 
rooms in the splendid condition they are now in, the lodge went to a great ex- 
pense and heavily in debt — all of which has since been wiped out. The walls 
and ceiling are richly and handsomely decorated and floors nicely carpeted. 

The honor has been twice conferred on Fremont Lodge and that in consecu- 
tive terms, by the appointment in the years 1902 and 1903 of its members. Broth- 
ers J. Bell Smith and John B. Stahl,' as District Deputy Grand Exalted Rulers 
for the Northwestern District of Ohio. 

.\fter locating in their new quarters the time of meeting was changed to 
Tuesday and the lodge now meets every Tuesday night, except in summer, 
when they meet first and third Tuesdays. There are 248 members and it is

assisted by Gallipolis Lodge, No. 107, Wasbington C. H. Lodge, No. 129, 
Cliillicotlie Lodge, No. 54, and Portsmoutii Lodge, No. 154. 

Tbe following were cbarter members : B. F. EUsberry, T. G. Brown, McCabe 
Austin, C. F. Dean, D. T. Busb, N. K. Moxley, Jr., T. L. CoUett, John Wecousky, 
J. A. Turley, W. C. Miller, John H. Lucas, W. S. Whitman, R. L. Gray, J. E. 
Whitman, H. E. Norton, L. Despard, E. W. Vviat and E. B. Cronacher. 

Tile following were initiated into the order by the officers of the Grand Lodge : 
J. F. Austin, J. G. Debang, J. M. McCoy and C. M. Humes, after which the fol- 
lowing were elected for their several offices : li. F. EUsberry, Exalted Ruler ; 
H. E. Norton, Esteemed Leading Knight; McCabe Austin, Esteemed Loyal

The lodge was started under favorable auspices and has continued active 
since, and now has a membership of 162. 

The meeting nights are the first and third Mondays in each calendar month. 
Their lodge room is situated in the Syndicate Block, on the corner of- Third and 
Park avenues. The lodge rooms occupy the whole of the third floor of this block. 
They have as nice quarters as most any lodge in the state, and their meeting 
room, which is also fitted up for dancing, is large and handsome. They have a 
ladies' parlor, a reading room, billiard and pool table room and card room, which 
are open all the time. 

This lodge is governed by a committee of house rules, which are strictly 
enforced, permitting no gambling, nor improper talk, and no kind of spirituous 
liquor is permitted withm their hall. 

They have a social session every Thursday, to which the members and their 
ladies are admitted. They have also a ladies' day, which is on Friday of every 
week, although the ladies are permitted at any time during the week, except when 
the lodge is in session.

was incurred to do this, but the lodge has now a property valuation of over $5,000, 
all paid for. The lodge meets every Thursday evening, and visiting brothers 
are always given the ".glad hand" of welcome.

History of Steubenville Lodge No. 231 

STia'l!l-:XVII.T,l-; I.ODC.I':, Xo. 23t, was inslitmcd April 7, i8(jj, hy Allen 
( ). Myers, Graiul Secretary, and I.. M. Ilailden, District DciJiily, assisted 
by members of Wheeling- Lodge, Xo. 2S. The lodge starto'd with forty-six 
charter members, and the Grand Secretary stated after the ceremonies that he 
had never instituted an HIU lotige whose charter membership contained so many 
l)rominent business and professional men of a commimity. Ever since its organi- 
zation the lodge has maintained its high standard of niembersLip, and as a result 
the roll of said lodge now is truly a representaton of Steubenville's best citizen- 
ship. The charter members were: W. R. P.urgoyne, A. C. Blackbrrn. J. \V. 
Cookson, H. S. Coble, C. W. Crumley, G. M. Crawford, .\rt Doughertv. J. W. 
Evans. W. VV. Griffith, J. 1'.. Griffith, G. iX. Henry, H. I!. Helms. A. C. Lewis. 
J. P. Means, G. A. Maxwell, R. J. Morrison, J. 1..' Means, L. S. Maxwell, G. 1'. 
Miller, W. S. McCauslen. A. \V. McDonald, John McKee, J. M. Reynolds, J. T. 
Sarratt, C. H. Steele, G. E. Sharpe, \V. M. Trainer, J. W. Warner, E. S. Warner. 
W. R. Johnson, H. C. Sherrard. 

The following is its original list of officers : W. S. McCauslen, Exalted 
Ruler; T. J\L Barclay, Esteemed Leading Knight; Frank Spearman, Esteemed 
Loyal Knight ; A. C. Lewis, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; William AL Trainer, 
Secretary ; John W. Cookson, Treasurer ; Spence Wallace, Esquire ; James T. 
Sarratt, Tyler ; D. W. Beall, Inner Guard ; S. N. McClinton, Chaplain ; Charles H. 
Steele, John P. Means, W. R. Burgoyne, Trustees. 

The present membership numbers 201, and the lodge is steadily growing. 
The year ending March, 1901, showed its greatest gain, in which time it initiated 
eighty members. 

The lodge believes that the "Ladies' Social" is one of the best features for 
the good of the order, and throughout each winter season its elegantly appointed 
rooms are thrown open to the brothers and their lady friends for dancing anfl 
card parties. 

In February. 1901, it took up its abiding place at Nos. 105-107 South Fourth, 
the second floor being used exclusively for social pur[)oses, and the third floor 
devoted to lodge i)urposes, where all visiting brothers receive a cordial welcome. 

One of the unique features of its lodge rooms is a collection of Elk badges, 
tastefully arranged in frames, over 1,000 in number, which were collected and 
donated to the lodge by Brother George N. Henry. This collection is considered 
the finest in the country. 

The lodge meets every Monday evening.

History of Conneaut Lodge No. 256. 

FROM an cnrollmciit of twenty members to a roster of one luinclred and ninety- 
fcnir in four years is tlie history of Conneaut I.odn-e, !'«. !'• O. Elks, No. 256 
and it is a record that the Conneaut lodge can well feel proud of, for on its 
roster is found only the representative men of Conneaut. The lodge was organ- 
ized eleven years ago, March 15, 1893, and while during its years of uifancy 
many obstacles were encountered, it only made those members who were true 
to the faith the more enthusiastic, since the lodge has enjoyed an enviable posUion 
among the fraternal societies of the city. Dr. W. A. Ward, deceased, was the 
first Exalted Ruler, and to his memory the first memorial service was held Decem- 
ber 2, 190 1. EoUowincr his service as Exalted Ruler came Dr. F. G. kelley, 
S. R.Findlay, D. A. Baker, A. S. Hand and C. W. Smith. 

The charter members were : Dr. W. A. Ward, A. H. Klumph, H. D. Putney, 
E T Dormaii S. R. Finlay, T- A. Caldwell, M. J. Hall, Neil Fortune, A. A. 
Atwater, T. W. Blanton, F. G. Kellev, G. H. Cleveland, John Quum. D. A. Baker, 
C J Blavton, E. Day, Thomas Fitzpatrick, George B. Ford, W. H. Hurlburt, 
David Lee. George Minty, M. Nolan, W. C. Oaks, F. Quinn, H. Omnn, B. 1-.

The following charter officers were installed by District Deputy Dr. VV L. 
Neibling of Findlav Lodge, assisted bv members of Findlay and Ashtabula. 
Ohio, and Erie, Pa.,' Lodges: Dr. W. A. Ward, Exalted Ruler; .\. H. Klumpf, 
Esteemed Leading Knight; H. D. Putnev, Esteemed Loyal Knight; E. T. Dorman, 
Esteemed Lecturing Knight; S. R. Finfay, Secretary; J. A. Caldwell, treasurer; 
M ] Hall Tvler;'Neil Fortune, Esquire; A. A. .Ktwater, Inner Guard; i. W. 
Blanton, Chaplain ; F. G. Kelley, G. H. Cleveland, John Quinn, Trustees 

Interest in the Order has recently been revived and the membership 
larc-civ increased. The lodge has just moved into its new and fine quarters 
in die Brown Block. Main street, and the members can justly feel proud of their 
new rooms as thev are without a doubt the finest of any city in the state of a 
comparative size. The lodge and cluli rooms are located on the same floor and 
are both furnished with new and costly furniture. A courteous steward is always 
in attendance, and visiting brothers are always welcome. The lodge meets every 
Frifliv even 111*^ 

For the first eight rears the lodge lost no member by death. Since that time, 
however, the Grim Reaper has made three visits and taken from our midst three 
of our best beloved, whom we mourn as:

trict Deputy ]'. C.. ]3erry, of Hamilton Lodge, assisted by members 
of Cincinnati and Hamilton Lodges. The charter members were: John 
Auer, Dr. D. B. Bundy, F. H. Barnetl, J. V. Bonnell, Charles E. Barnett, John Q. 
Baker, James C. Brereton. John W. I'.oyd, W. H. Bcvinger, J. D. Cooper, Charles

F. P. Sutphen, T. C. Simpson, D. H. Van Sickle, Harry Walburg, Peter Weber, 
George H. \Vilson, 

The following charter ofticers were installed : John T. Sutphen, Exalted 
Ruler: James C. P.reretnn. Esteemed Leading Knight; George H. Sebald, Es- 
teemed Loyal Knight: Ed. Thompson, Esteemed Lecturing Knight: Harry Wal-

McCurry, Organist : Paul J. Sorg. Peter Weber. J. D. Cooper. J. H. Oglesby. C. A. 
Pardonner, Trustees. 

After the installation a magnificent banquet was spread at the United States 
Hotel, which surpassed anything of the kind ever seen in Middletown. The lodge 
has splendid quarters, beautifully furnished, and is recognized as the lodge I'ar 
excellence of the city. Its meeting nights are Thursdays, and visiting members 
of the antlcred herd are always given a hearty welcome and entertainment. 

This lodge has established a new record in fraternal orders in the election and 
initiation of five members of the same family all at the same time — brothers be- 
fore by consanguineous ties — brothers now by self assumed obligations in the 
l)rotherhood of man. banded together for the practice of true benevolence and 
charity towards all mankind. Incidents are not rare where three of a kind are 
held by other lodges in the Elks and other orders, but this is the first time, of 
which we have any record, of a full hand— all Sniders.

The banquet and social session, which followed the installation of officers,

several weeks after its organization the lodge held its meetings in the Knights 
of Pvthias' hall, after which time they moved into quarters prepared for them in 
N^autrot block, where they have continued ever since. In 1900 the lodge spent 
$5,000 in fitting up and furnishing their cozy quarters and they now have beau- 
tifully arranged and furnished parlor, library, card, grill and lodge rooms, 
views of which, photographed by Bro. Will S. \'oit, have been reproduced and 
will be found printed in this work.

History of Hillsboro Lodge No. 361 


ILLSIiORO Lodge \o. ^Ul W. V. ( ). 1*.. was insliliitcd Marcli inlli, 
1897, by Cincinnati Lodge No. 5, tlic work l)t.'ing in cliargc ol 1'. ("•. 
H. R. Meade Detwiler. The ciiarter list consisted of tliirly-nine mem- 
bers, as follows : 

Peter Adams, Frank Ayres, L. B. Boyd, C. E. Bell, C.alch Brown, E. E. 
Crossland, Frank Collins, M. R. Cravens, J. M. CotYey, W. H. Cusliman, H. D. 
Davis, R. M. Uitty, D. D. Downing, Frank Emmerling, S. K. Free, Tim Foley, 
J. H. Feibel, C. E. Graham, T. 11. Holmes, A. E. Hough, W. .\. llarman, Isaac 
Kaufmann, J. C. Larkin, Charles Lyle, D. Q. Morrow, U. C. Morrow, VVm. 
Matthews, Cyrus Newby, H. A. Pavey, J. C. Richards, Dick Rockhold, L E. 
Sands, W. G. Smith, J. C. Spargur, L McD. Smith. J. M. Scarborough, H. D. 
W'addell, Jos. Winegardner, McKnight Walker. 

The Charter officers were : A. E. Hough, E-\alted Ruler ; Cyrus Newby, 
Esteemed Leading Knight; R. M. Ditty, Esteemed Loyal Knight; John C. Lar- 
kin, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; Gatch Brown, Secretary ; Dick Rockhold, 
Treasurer; Joseph Winegardner, Tyler; William Matthews, Esquire: T. H. 
Holmes, Inner Guard ; O.C. Morrow', Chaplain ; Sam R. Free, L. B. Boyd, Mc- 
Knight Walker, Trustees. 

While the growth of the lodge has not been rapid, it has been steady and 
substantial, until, at present, it has a membership of one hundred and twenty- 
five, consisting of many of the best business and professional men within its jur- 
isdiction, and it is today one of the strongest fraternal organizations in Hillsboro. 

Considering the comparatively short time since its institution the increase in 
membership has been satisfactory not only as to numbers, but as to the represen- 
tative character of its roster. The lodge is in good shape financially, has pleas- 
ant social quarters, holds open sessions occasionally, and an anniversary cele- 
bration each year on March loth. 

It has been peculiarly exempt from sickness, but has sufTered the loss of 
four members by death, the first one being one of the most honored in our num- 
]>er, Bro. W. A. Harman, who at the time of his death, was Exalted Ruler. He 
was followed by another of our Exalted Rulers, Bro. O. C. Morrow and he by 
Bros. Samuel I'vnonenberger and C. E. Graham, all of whom were held in high es- 
teem and affection by the members. The first two were charter members of the 
lodge and among the most zealous and enthusiastic workers, and died lamented 
by all who knew them. 

Grand Exalted Ruler Jerome B. Fisher honored Hillsboro Lodge by the 
appointment of Hon. Irvin McD. Smith as District Deputy G. E. R. for the South- 
western district of Ohio for the year 1900-1901. 

The lodge meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

history of Coshocton Lodge No. 376. 

COSIlUCTOX Lodge was iiisiitiUcd Jam; 15, 1897, In District Deputy 
George Buxton, assisted by Zanesville Lodge No. 114. There were 
thirty-eight charter members as follows: 

r. C. I'omerene, P. P. DeHart, H. D. JJcach, C. P. Gosser, Robert Boyd, C. 
1). Brooke, W. R. Pomereiie, VV. P. Darling, J. W. Cassingham, C. E. Spangler, 
Seth M. Snyder, G. W. Cassingham, J. B. Callahan, R. M. Voorhees, B. W. Rick- 
etts, J. L. Rue, Bert B. Knode, O. VV. AIcMannis, R. P. Timmons, John H. 
Ricketts, C. M. Hay, p. M. Mortley, P. A. G. Lawrence, R. P. Hershey, P. L. 
VVernette, C. E. Ransom, William B. tlay, William Burns, C. B. McCoy, S. H. 
Nicholas, C.^ L. Walker, p. E. McManus, T. IL Wheeler, P. H. Wilson. P. P. 
I'omerene, C. S. Raymer, R. i\L Voorhees, C. P. McMannis. 

The charter officers were: C. L. Cassingham, Exalted Ruler; W. H. Mc- 
Cabe, Esteemed Leading Kniglit ; B. W. Ricketts, Esteemed Loyal Ivnight; C. S. 
Raymer, Esteemed Lecturing Isjiight ; B. P. Voorhees, Secretary ; William Burns,

ner Guard; Robert Boyd, Chaplain; C. B. McCog, J. W. Cassingham, P. E. 
Pomerene, Trustees. 

The club rooms are located on the corner of Sixth and Main streets, oc- 
cupying the entire second floor of the Rogers building and are the finest in tow-n, 
furnished in modern up-to-date fashion, including some very fine pictures paint- 
ed by our home artists, all of whom are members of the lodge. There is well 
lighted billiard and pool room, and a room devoted to cards and games for amuse- 
ment only, also gymnasium with a complete outfit. The assembly hall is nicely 
furnished and large enough for all ordinary purposes. This is also used for 
dancing. The lodge is negotiating for the addition of another story to the build- 
ing, which they will use for lodge purposes exclusively and when completed they 
hope to have the handsomest lodge room in th state. The cafe is well managed 
and refrigerator always filled with eatables necessary to make life comfortable. 
There is one reading room well furnished and supplied with nearly all the maga- 
zines and papers of interest for the benefit of those who wish to read. The com- 
bining of these different entertainments add largely to the value of the organiza- 
tion and gives each member a form of amusement suitable to his individual taste. 
The management constantly aims to add to the assortment of amusements which 
interests the members, and enables them to appreciate the fact that they are 
members of the lodge. The social sessions and stag socials are always enjoyable 
and successful. There is an aimual reception given the public on New Years day. 
Lodge attendance usually good. Rooms well patronized. Visiting brothers al- 
ways welcome. Be sure and ask some brother member to show you the fine 
flag won by Coshocton at the State Convention held in Newark, September 14, 
ii«2. for the large attendance and fine appearance of the lodge. 

The lodge meets first and tiiird Tuesday each month.

History of Lebanon Lodge No. 422. 

LEBANON Lodge No. 422 was granted a dispensation to organize a lodge 
of B. P. O. E. in Lebanon and on March 17th, 1898, the K. of P. hall was 
secured and used for some time by the lodge. There were but nineteen 
of the charter list able to attend the institution of the lodge. The work of in- 
stitution and initiation was done by the members of Middletown Lodge No. 257. 
T3ie degrees were given the nineteen signers of the charter list and at a later 
day the balance were taken in. 

The charter members were the following representative citizens : George 
W. Sausser, J. W. Glcnny, W. H. Antram, W. G. Thompson, R. W. Smart, 
James R. Bundy, G. F. Brown, W. H. Stubbs, C. L. Blackburn, Frank Gallaher,

Hyman, E. Trovillo, F. M. Conden, Lewis Sicker, James Stoops, Clem Conden, 
\V. J. Kilbon, Fxl. Stewart, Frank Brandon. 

The charter officers were : W. H. Stubbs, Exalted Ruler ; W. H. Antram, 
Esteemed Leading Knight ; Frank Gallaher, Esteemed Loyal Knight ; Frank Bran- 
don, Esteemed Lecturing Knight ; G. W. Sausser, Secretary ; W. G. Thompson,

cured in a new building just completed. They have an entire third floor and in 
it are their lodge room, banquet hall and club rooms. The lodge is in a healthy 
condition in regard to membership and finances and are experiencing a steady 
growth of the best people in the city and surroundings. Its meetings are held first

The work of initiation was done by Canton Lodge No. 68 in the I. O. O. F. 
hall. I'anquet was served at Conrad Hotel, two hundred Elks being present. 
The lodge has splendidly arranged lodge and club rooms in Pille Block, having 
fitted up on March 7, 1901, the entire third floor and furnished it at a cost of $6,500. 

A minstrel show is given every year, two nights, to packed houses. 

The mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of the Elks have a Deer Club, 
which meets in the afternoons in the ladies parlors. These occasions are not only 
enjoyable to the ladies themselves, but the moral effect has been beneficial and 
far reaching and has tended to elevate and ennoble the dignity, the standing 
and the work of the order in the community. 

The lodge was honored in 1901 by the appointment of Brother T. H. Smith, 
one of its most representative members as District Deputy for Northeastern Ohio. 

The lodge meets every Wednesday evening.

History of Jackson Lodge No. 664. 

JACKSON Lodge No. 466, B. P. O. Elks, of Jackson, Ohio, was instituted 
on the 2nd day of March, 1899, at tiie K. of P. Hall in the City of Jack- 
son, by District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler F. M. Ford, of Zanesville, 
Ohio, assisted by the regular team from Chillicothe Lodge No. 52. The institu- 
tion of the Lodge of Elks in Jackson was a gala day in the history of the city 
when seventy-five members from the ancient capital, Chillicothe Lodge No. 52, 
accompanied by the Salem band, thirty-eight from the River City, Ports- 
mouth Lodge No. 154, and brothers from Washington, C. H., Gallipolis, Hills- 
boro, Newport and other sister lodges, joined together in the festivities and work of 
installation. Early in the afternoon business was suspended and the people of 
the City and vicinity turned out en iiiasse to greet the visitors, welcome the 
new lodge of Elks and witness the parade, which was one of the interesting 
features of the occasion. The installation ceremonies being completed, the line of 
march was taken to the banquet which was held at the Crescent Opera House 
where a scene of beauty met the gaze of the new Elks and visitors. Brother 
Thomas Emmett Moore acted as toastmaster and welcomed the visitors and 
guests. Brother Ford, Grand District Deputy, delivered a pleasant address on 
some of the prominent features of the order and was heartily applauded. H. D. 
Meade Massie, of Chillicothe, responded eloquently to the toast, "The Elks," 
while Brother L M. Jordan, of Chillicothe, spoke most entertainingly on "Our 
Obligations." Judge J. C. Milner, with sparkling wit and cheering logic, had 
much to say for the "Portsmouth Elks." The hour of eleven at hand, Hon. Harry 
T. Bannon, of Portsmouth, eloquently and touchingly responded to the beautiful 
memorial toast of the order. Brother W. A. Wallace, of Chillicothe, told of "The 
Things I Cannot Forget," while Judge J. M. Thomas, his fellow-townsman, was 
assigned to talk on "Our Order" ; he did not fail to express a handsome tribute 
to the ladies of Jackson, many of whom were present, the banquet being served 
by the ladies of the M. E. Church. Hon. R. L. Grimes, one of the newly made 
Elks, spoke pleasantly and feelingly of the "New Elk," after which the toast- 
maister bade the visitors good night and the big banquet was at an end. 

The charter for Jackson lodge was granted at a session of the Grand Lodge 
on the 22nd day of June, 1899, and immediately thereafter the lodge opened its 
club rooms in the Martin block which they continued to occupy until May, 1903. 
During the summer of 1903 its quarters were remodeled and a new structure 
added thereto, and in September of 1903 the lodge was at home again in the 
Martin block, corner Main and Broadway. It has a neat and commodious lodge 
room with well equipped quarters and club rooms consisting of parlor, billiard 
and card rooms, reading room, smoker, small gymnasium, paraphernalia rooms 
and other modern equipments essential to make an attractive and comfortable 
home. The parlor is furnished with an elegant piano with a Cecilian player at- 
tached. The club rooms are open for Brother Elks only, except for the last few 
months, as an innovation, the quarters are open on Friday afternoons and even- 
ings to ladies when accompanied with a Brother Elk. 

The open house and social sessions are features of the Jackson Lodge. Dur- 
ing tlie holidavs, one dav each year is assigned as open house day and the ladies 
of the city are its guests. Social sessions are held at irregular intervals of about

two montlis apart. The regular sessions of the lodge are held on Wednesday 
evening of each week. 

At present it has a menihership of 107, and since its institution in iSyg, it 
was instrumental and aided in the insttuton of a second lodge in the county at 
VVellston. As to menihership, its motto has heen, quality and not quantity, and 
the character of its work has reached a point of excellence. CJii the evening of 
the 25th, day of May, 1904, three candidates were initiated in the presence of a 
large memhership and several visiting brothers. District Deputy Grand Exalted 
Ruler R. L. Queisser, of Zanesville, being present to inspect the work of the 
lodge, spoke in glowing terms of the work and membership of the lodge and 
praised the work and efforts of the officers as second to none in his jurisdiction. 
Brother Oueisser's presence and words of encouragement were highly appre- 
ciated and a return visit will be fondly welcomed.

History of Marielta Lodge No. 477. 

EARLY in 1S99, Brothers J. W. Nye , A. IX Follett, E. S. Aklcniian and J. A, 
Joscjiliy, wlio were then niembcrs of Zancsville Lodge, No. 114, feeling 
tiiat tlic time was ripe for a lodge of Elks in Marietta, secured a suitable 
list of names and applied for a dispensation, which was granted by Grand Exalted 
Knler John Calvin. April 27, 1899, was selected as the day for instituting the 
new lodge, which was done by District Deputy Frank M. Ford, assisted by the 
members of Zancsville Lodge, No. 114. 

There were fifty-two names on the charter list, as follows : H. S. Alderman, 
F. C. Audibert, O. .\. C. Ahrcndts, H. K. Bond, John H. Becker, C. S. Colt, C. K.

it was decided that steps be taken to secure suitable permanent quarters for the 
lodge, together with a club room, and a committee was appointed, consisting of 
Brothers C. R. Richardson, Dr. Charles S. Hart and E. C. S. Holmboe, to secure 
plans and specifications for such quarters. 

Upon July 24th, 1899. the Trustees were authorized to purchase from Brother

plans were submitted by Brother E. C. S. Holmboe and adopted. On October 
15th, 1899, the contract was let to Brother W. B. Smith. 

On October 15th, 1900, the lodge held its first meeting in its new building, 
built by an F.Ik, out of funds furnished by Elks, upon a lot purchased from an 
F'lk. This building, completed and furnished, stands as a monument to the cnter- 
]>rise of a young lodge. 

Dedicatory exercises were lield on the afternoon of October 15th, 1900, fol- 
lowed by a banquet in the evening, these two services being exclusively for Elks 
and their families. 

On the afternoon of October 18 a reception was tendered the ladies of the 
city bv the ladies of the F.Iks, and in the evening the same courtesies were extended 
to the citizens in general by the lucmbcrs of the l<i(Igc and their ladies.

History of New Philadelphia Lodge No. 510. 


NI'IW rillLADHLl'HlA Lodge No. 510, of the I'.eiievoleiU :ind rrotective 
Order of Elks was instituted under a dis])ensation granted b_v Grand Ex- 
alted Ruler Calvin on the 8th day of June, iSijy. The petition for tli 
eslablishnKiit of this lodge was signed b)' llic following members : Dr. K. S. 
liarton. Canton Lodge No 68; H. B. L"l<ens. Wheeling Lodge No. 28; Thomas 
Eurey, Wheeling Lodge No. 28; A. ]•:. Cetz, J. l\ Cerber, John Keusser, and 
C. A. Conway, of Uhrichsville Lodge No. 424. 

It was the aim of the committee wIk) had in charge the matter of securing a 
charter list — J. E. Cerber, .\. E.. Cetz, and C. .\. Conway — to get as many of the

decorated in purple and white, the Elk colors, and across the end of the hall was 
stretched a banner hearing the title "P.. P. O. E. Nelsonville Lodge No. 543," 
while on the walls were hung pictures of elks and a magnificent pair of antlers. 
The tables r:in the entire length of the room and covers were laid for 175 guests. 
Hon. Emmictt Tompkins was toast master. Pass. .Agent Fisher responded to the 
"Telephone": McTighe. of New Lexington, "Why I am an Elk": and Judge

Since the institution the lodge has made ra|)id progress and n<Tw has the 
finest lodge and clul) rooms in the city, indeed there are few lodges in the State 
which have finer, the lodge? room furnisliings especially being very handsome. 
W^c present a view of them re])riiduced from photos made by Brother Lee Mc- 
Dowell, a member of the lodge.

Kail aiul C. W. Jlcnjamiii, was furiiislicd so as to excite- tlic just priilc of the 
members and tlic admiration of visiting hlks. 

Sidnev Lodge lias but one deceased brotlier— J. W. Cotiklin. 

The lodge lias been fortunate in the selection of the meni'bers of the enter- 
tainment committee and festive gatherings of the Elks and their friends arc 
always enjoyable affairs. In 1903 an Elk's picnic was held m the fair grounds 
which was attended bv nearlv all the Elks and their families. 

That the lodge is'not lacking in talent was shown by tlic successful minstrel 
show given on April 27 and 28, 1904. The committee on general arrangements 
for this entertainment were George W. Hemic, George Kraft, Arthur knauer, 
1' I. Scherer, E. C. Over. Interlocuter, Charles M. Wyman ; Uones, George 
Rickets, Louis P. Kraft'. Charles Xeal ; Tambos, George Fenner, Charles Wid- 
mer, Milton Hertzstani. The opening overture introduced the following songs: 
"The Military Coon," "Message of the Violets," "Lip in the Cocoanut Tree;'' 
"Anv Rags," George Rickets; "You're the Flower of my Heart, Sweet Adeline." 
George i\raft ; "Llannah, Won't You Open That Door," (k>orge Fenner ;_ "Only 
a I'.unch of \'iolets," George Henne; "Everv ^forn 1 Bring Her Chicken," Louis 
Kraft- "Down on the Farm," Max Carey; "The Man 15ehind," Milton Hertz- 
stain '"An Old Sweetheart of Mine," Allen Whited ; "Two Eyes of I'.rown, 
Robert Van DcGrift. Chorus: tenors, Garfield Calland, Ralph Kali; baritone, 
Will Kaser- bass, Kerr Carev, Eayre Flinn, Arthur Bates. Grand finale in- 
troducing the songs, "Meet me in St. Louis," "B. P. O. E. Volunteers." Mono- 
loo-ue bv Thomas Filmer and an excellent olio by professional talent. 

'^ This minstrel was favorablv commented upon and the members received 
manv liighlv complimentarv expressions on the excellence of both perform- 
ance's which were held with crowded houses. Financially, a large amount was 
netted for the lodge, although the weather was unfavorable and the original 
intention of giving it in a tent had to be changed at the last moment to the 

.-\rmorv. , , , , 

This lodo-e is progressive and has secured the most up-to-date parapher- 
nalia for degree work, being assisted bv the liberality of Harry G. Wagner: 
and each ofificer takes pride "in having a high standard for the ritualistic cere- 
monies The lodge is entirclv out of debt and is saving for a home. 

Tlie success of Sidnev Lodge has been due in a large sense to the ability 
of its officers and the ?o'od will and unanimity which exists between all the 
members The District Deputv paid a visit to the lodge and was extremely well 
pleased Everv Elk is an enthusiastic worker for the order and is ever mindtul 
of the cardinal attributes of Elkdom— Charity. Justice. Brotherly Love and

History of Wilmington Lodge No. 797. 

WILMINGTON Lodge No. 797 Benevolent rrotcctive Order of Elks 
was instituted August 1, 1902, with all the formalities incident to such 
occasions. The ceremonies attracted a large number of members of the 
order from all the towns around. Xenia Lodge was in charge of the work of mitia- 
lion and the largest delegation came from that city. The District Deputy, 
whose duty it was to institute the Lodge, was accompanied by many Llks trom 
Cincinnati, while Lebanon, HiUsboro and Washington C. H. were largely rep- 
resented. Others came from Columbus, Chillicothe, Uayton and other cities ot 
Ohio, while even Nashville, Tenn., had a representative present. 

Wilmington was turned over to the visitors, their welcome made as cordial 
as possible and their stay as pleasant as the capabilities of the town would permit. 
Many business houses were decorated and the purple and white, the colors ot the 
order were in evidence everywhere. About three hundred Elks were present, 
and with others w-ho were attracted by the occasion, made the crowd on the 

streets a large one. . . , . 

Each hour during the forenoon brought the visiting Elks and by one o clock 
many were in town. The home band at that hour went upon Us stand and rend- 
ered a concert, and at three o'clock a procession was formed for a short parade 
about town. The uniform for the day was shirt waists, or the absence of coats 
and w^hite caps with a purple band. Headed by the band the procession moved 
around a few blocks and then to the B. & O. station to meet the grand othcers and 
associates from Cincinnati. Upon their arrival the lines were again torined and 
the several hundred antlered brethren marched to South street and north on 
that street to the Odd Fellows Temple, the procession being a large and a hand- 
some one. . , J I , 

On arrival at the Temple the work of the day^ was taken up and proceeded 
without intermission until concluded at about 9 o'clock. r u a 

The initiation of the candidates was in charge of H. N. Sch lesmger, Exal ed 
Ruler of Xenia Lodge, and he was assisted by "Billy" McCalhster and Judge 
Marcus Shoup, of the Xenia Lodge, the Exalted Ruler of Cincinnati Lodge anu 
other visitors. The novi'tiates were as follows: Fred C. Bath. C. J^;^/ooP^-

was appointeil Cliaijlain, C. \i. 'J'oojjs, Inner Cjuartl, and S. S. (Jutcalt, Esquire. 
The orticers were rei^ularly installed, t'lie new lodjjje was declarcil instituted by 
District Deput\- Mor^^enthaler, of Cincinnati, and the work of the day was 
done with another branch of Elkdoni dul\ aiuhorized to confer the degree and 
grow antlers upon the heads of victims. 

An elaborate banc|uet had been prepared at the armory of Company F, and 
all reixiired there to do justice to the refreshments with api>etites which bad beeii 
whetted by a long fast. When the cigars were lighted Congressman Hildebrant 
acted as toastmaster and a numiber of prominent Elks w^ere introduced, among 
them Al. G. Fields, the famous minstrel. Addresses were made by members from 
Cincinnati, Xenia, Lebanon, Hillsboro and Wilmington, while the Lebanon quar- 
tette rendered several sungs. This social feature was very nuicli enjoyed, but at 
1 1 o'clock the banquet was broken up, good-byes were said and the festivities of 
the day were over. 

The visitors all expressed themselves as being highly pleased with their brief 
sojourn here and with the cordiality of their entertainment, while the home 
l)eople were glad of the opportunity to meet and act as liosts for their brethren.

History of Martins Ferry Lodge No. 595. 

IN the fine old town of Martins Ferrv, Ohio, l(x-atecl on the Ohio river op- 
posite Wiiedintr. W. Va.. there was instituted on January 25th, 1904 midst 
raging torrents and seas of ice, a new Elk Lodge called "Martms Ferry 

■'^°' Sstrict Deputv. Grand Exalted Ruler Robert L. Queisser. of Zanesville 
officiated and instituted this new lodge that started out with a membership of 
twentv-five. all of whom were previously Elks in good standing-th.s perhaps, 
being' the first time in the history of Elkdom that all the charter members of a 
new lodge were already Elks. 

The first lines of this article, referring to "raging torrents and seas ot ce 
must be explained bv saying that January 25th was the day of the tremendous 
Hood on the Ohio riv^-r, when, for the first time in twenty years the water reached 
the unprecedented stage of 44 feet two inches and completely ^uhn..jged t e 
Island" situated in the Ohio river between Martins Ferry and Wheeling, and 
called "the garden spot" of Wheeling. 

The District Deputv reached Uellaire, Ohio, seven miles from Martins herr), 
the ni-ht before, and in ihe morning was told that it would be absolutely miposs.ble 
to reach Martins Ferry that day, as all railroad and traction line tracks were under 
water, and on account of the high stage of the water no boat service was to 
be secured and all this, too, when the date had been made to absolutely appear a 
Martins Ferrv that day and institute the new lodge. By the way, too, it is of 
passing interest to know that the day previous, when the river was at Us lugh^ 
St potn, zero weather had prevailed and ice from 6 inches to 8 inches hick had 
frozen and when the water receded, leaving the banks and the who e Is and 
covered with ice and ice floes from 6 inches to 6 feet thick. Curious cakes of ice 
were still hanging from the second and third stories of the residence and busi- 
ness buildings all over the Island. 

After considerable telephoning the District Deputy finally reached Wheeling, 
W \^a via 15 & O.. and late in the afternoon Brother P. P. Miller secured a 
ca;riage, drove' over from Martins Ferry, and the return trip of Brother Mil er 
and tlfe District Deputv was quite memorable, for the streets were stdl filled with 
dangerous ice, and in places the streets were covered with deep running wate . 

^Notwithstanding Ihese back sets and apparent obstacles, the lodge was duly 
instituted at the appointed time that evening. This new lodge started out with a 
p ndid meiubersii, of sterling good fellows. For three years they had be. 
endeavoring to organize for themselves, but on account o. objections raised In 
near bv lodges, winch were sustained by some of the Past District and 
r.rand' Exalted Rulers, it seemed they would not be able to attain tliew wishes, 
i: the face of these objections, however. Brothers P. P. Miller and L. Leather- 
wood continued with trojan efforts ,0 bring about a lodge o their own. and it 
was onlv through the indefatigable efforts of these two that brought about the 


iMaktins FivUuv No. 895. 

final culmination and institution of this lodge. A point worthy of note is that 
t\vcnt_v-nine new ap[ilicati(>ns for nienihcrship were prcseiuetl on the niplit the lodge 
was instituted. 

Not only has this lodge a local ])0]ndation in Martins Ferry of 10,000 to 
draw from, hiU it also draws from i'ridgeport, a town of perhaps 5,000, and 
the prospects are the very hrightest for a sjjlcndid organization, and as the Dis- 
trict Deputy aptly said in his address at the han(|uet, "A new star has risen in the 
firmament of Elkdom and its name is Martins Ferry No. 895." 

The charter members were : George Cooke, P. P. Miller, Carlos Leather- 
wood, Thomas H. Jones, George W. Webb, James Furey, Louis L. Scheehle, 
Hay ward Long, W. A. Tweedy, John A. Moore, J. R. Wilson, John Woods, H.
